Kayakers and canoeists are invited to participate in the next Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Paddle event on the Fox River from De Pere to Green Bay on Friday night.
Participants should meet at 4:30 p.m. at the Bomier Park boat landing on the east bank of the river just south of downtown De Pere to unload, register and shuttle vehicles to the takeout. A presentation will be made by a Heritage Hill State Historical Park staff member before the 6 p.m. launch.
The 8-mile journey will pass through the De Pere lock and downtown Green Bay to the takeout at the Green Bay Metro Boat Landing.
A fee of $10 per participant helps cover expenses of the paddles in the paddle series, which supports the Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Parkway’s effort to create a designated water trail and gain National Heritage Area status for the historic waterway.
