Paddle & A Pour on the KK River w/ Milwaukee Riverkeeper

August 20, 5:30 pm-9:00 pm

We are very lucky to have Milwaukee Riverkeeper here in Milwaukee as their mission is to protect, improve and advocate for water quality, riparian wildlife habitat, and sound land management in the Milwaukee, Menomonee, and Kinnickinnic River Watersheds.

This season, we will be offering 3 guided paddles with Milwaukee Riverkeeper. On this trip in August, we will paddle through our Harbor and up the KK River. We will be talking about the state of the rivers and different points of interest as we go. We will paddle as time allows and return back to MKC’s dock around 8pm. After we return, we will walk to a local restaurant for a complimentary beer and appetizer.
