Nature Current Big Canoe Outing on Black Otter Lake

Paddling with friends after singing kirtan music in Nature Current’s big canoe was a nice way to complete the day with an immersion in nature on Black Otter Lake.

Here are some photos from the afternoon.

Nature Current’s BIG canoe is available for your group outing on the water.

Nature Current BIG Canoe Trip – Princeton to Berlin on the Upper Fox

Would you like the opportunity to paddle a BIG canoe?

Join us on the Fox River in our BIG canoe.

Join us on the Fox River in our BIG canoe.

Nature Current’s BIG Canoe will be joining the Fox Wisconsin Heritage Paddle on the upper Fox River from the White River Dam near Princeton to Berlin on Saturday, June 22nd.

This route begins at the White River Dam landing, downstream from Princeton, WI. It’s a very natural and scenic section of the Fox River. Along the way we’ll see where the White River flows into the Fox River on the left, and the Puchyan River also adds its contribution to the growing Fox River a bit further downstream. The trip distance is about 12.5 miles.

Be sure to pack plenty of water and sunscreen, and bring a snack for lunch!

For more information about this trip email Mark  at info@naturecurrent.com

If you’re not available June 22nd Nature Current’s canoe will be paddling four additional Heritage Parkway Paddle events this season.  June 23rd – Winneconne to Oshkosh, July 20th – Park to Park Paddle – Neenah to Appleton, August 17th – Tall Ships Paddle and September 28th – Appleton Locks Paddle.  We currently have room in all these upcoming heritage paddle trips.  Contact Mark at Nature Current for details about these trips.

Or, get your own group together and Nature Current can create a fun filled nature immersion customized for your group.  Nature Current have many paddles available on the Wolf River and Fox River.  The BIG canoe is a great way to experience Wisconsin’s waterways with your friends, family or any group that would enjoy a nature outing.

Big Canoe Paddling on the Wolf River with Nature Current

A nice warm April day was a great reason to get the new BIG canoe on the water with friends and family to explore the flooded Wolf River. We started in Shiocton at Hwy 54, paddled up to where the Shioc River enters the Wolf and then were able to go another mile on the Shioc because the water was so high.

We did have to turn Water Lily, our big voyageur canoe around at the old bridge over the Shioc River because the clearance was too low. We took the big canoe through some of the flooded areas and explored in the trees. A red tailed hawk visited us along our journey.
