Kayaking the Mississippi River

August 31, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Rebecca Snyder will share her experiences and adventures from paddling the Mississippi River in a free presentation at the library on Tuesday, August 31 at 1:00 p.m.

Rebecca paddled from August 20 to October 18, 2020. She will talk about the Mississippi River, changes to the river, and what to expect if you want to do a long-haul paddle. The talk will include a PowerPoint presentation and allow time for questions.

Rebecca is a graduate of Mercer Public School and graduated from the UW-Madison with a B.S. degree in geology. She is a professional geologist in the States of Illinois, Kentucky, and Missouri. For her adventure, her profession and background made her pay attention to the natural and artificial forces placed upon the River and how it has changed this River—perhaps forever; and her love for water, paddling, and nature was a perfect fit for a river trip.

For more information, call the library at 715-476-2366.
