Wild River Academy, a non-profit organization based in Minneapolis, is proud to announce their 2013 expedition: Paddle Forward. From September 18th to late November, ten young adults and a videographer will paddle the Mississippi River from Itasca, MN to New Orleans, LA to create a video documentary about watershed communities and their relationship to the Mighty Mississippi River.
Elementary, middle and high schools are invited to follow our trip. By following the blog, you will have access to our weekly, age-appropriate discussion questions about what we encounter on the river in real time. We want to know what you think!
