Our goal is to discover the people, sights, ecology, industry, and everything in between, and to share these discoveries with you.

This is an interactive journey, and we would love to hear from you! Please read below for what to expect from us and how you can be a part of our adventure.

We are currently on the Minnesota River!  You can use the content at anytime during your school year.  Follow along today and enjoy discovering right along side of the paddlers.
