River Alliance of Wisconsin 30th Anniversary Paddle Event Series

River Alliance of Wisconsin 30th anniversary paddle event series

Menominee River – River:30 paddle

Saturday, September 16, 2023 @ 9:00 AM

Menominee River Paddle,

Help River Alliance of Wisconsin celebrate our 30th anniversary by enjoying the rivers people have worked hard to protect and restore. On Saturday, September 16, we will paddle the Menominee River together and learn the history of this valuable and scenic gem. Your registration includes a guided paddle on the Menominee with river history and talks by area experts.

Menominee River paddle, plus an option to paddle as a group to the Coalition to SAVE the Menominee River Water Celebration

Our full group tour will meet at 9 a.m., launch at 10 a.m., and paddle the Menominee from Wausaukee to near Walsh, Wisconsin. The time on the water will be approximately two hours. You also have an option to join us at Hattie Street in Marinette to paddle as a group to join.

NOTE: No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

We welcome all paddlers! To pay what you can, choose the “everyone is welcome” ticket and you can pay an optional price that fits your budget in the additional contribution field. If you cannot rent a boat, let us know and we can secure a donated boat you can use.

By choosing the “individual ticket” trip price of $30, you’ll help us cover the costs of the event including a shuttle service and event insurance. Make an additional contribution to help our event welcome all paddlers, regardless of their financial resources.

Need a canoe?

Contact the River Alliance of Wisconsin by September 8 to arrange a canoe in advance. Email Stacy at sharbaugh@wisconsinrivers.org.

Event registration will close on September 8.

Questions? Contact Stacy Harbaugh at sharbaugh@wisconsinrivers.org.

GORO Stocks are Down!


Things seem a little low-key right now GORO stock prices are rapidly declining.

It may look like we are winning the battle to save our beloved Menominee River. But now is not the time to become complacent. Things may be a little on the quiet side but they are far from being over. We must remain vigilant, we must continue to fight the good fight.

We still need you more than ever.  Stay with us. Stay engaged. Tap into what you do best to help. Maybe that is writing letters to the editor, writing letters for others who don’t possess that talent, continue to write your local and state officials and agencies. Put up a sign and spread the word. It takes all of us.

We have a great Water Celebration coming up on September 16 at the Menominee Band Shell for starters.

This is something you don’t want to miss and we will also need lots of helping hands. We don’t sit around. We’re soon going mobile! We’re talking high visibility.  Details soon! Coming soon are a few new merchandise options! We continue to walk the talk. We don’t want you to miss anything. We’ll tell you when it’s over….
