PADDLE FORWARD is a program of Wild River Academy, a non-profit organization dedicated to engaging communities in watershed education and outdoor recreation.
Paddle Forward is an annual canoe expedition down the river tributaries of the Mississippi Watershed. The program is primarily focused on three main purposes:
(1) Work with K-12 schools through our Adventure Learning Model by engaging students throughout the U.S. in our trips
(2) Provide an experiential and unique learning opportunity for college students and recent graduates
(3) Engage with river communities as we paddle to learn about their community.
Through our story, we hope to provided a memorable experience that students can discuss in class, expand their knowledge beyond the classroom walls, and inspire them to embark on their own experiential adventures in the future. Water is one of our most valuable resources -- check out how we explore our nation’s watersheds!
