Residents will have the chance to learn about their river and do it for FREE! We will use 1 person kayaks. Ages 10+. 

This paddle will start at 5:30pm on Friday August 24th at Waubedonia Park and end at Ehlers Park, although locations are weather dependent.  Expected end time is around 7:30. Full details for the day will be given to those who register!  This event is FREE, and open to Saukville residents only.  Pre-registration through Riveredge Nature Center is required.  Call 262-375-2715 to register.

Community Rivers Program - Softshell Turtle Release

Last week’s Spiny Softshell Turtle Release went phenomenally thanks to the incredible efforts of local Healthy River Hero, Angela Tomasino!  Angela is nurse and says that caring for others (including animals) is just part of who she is.  Not only did she save these turtles from predation, she coordinated their release with the Community Rivers Program to share the love and to give everyone in the community an opportunity to experience river life first hand.  It was great to see so many residents engaged with the Milwaukee River and caring for some of it’s smallest creatures.  Everyone who helped release these turtles back to their home is a Healthy River Hero in our eyes!
If you missed the turtle release last week, you can find photos of the event on the Community Rivers Program Facebook and Instagram pages @communityrivers.  You can see a video of Angela on our social media pages as well!
