Afternoon: 12 pm - 4 pm 

Where: Along the Yahara through the Town of Dunn from Jaeger Park to Fish Camp County Park.  Directions to the put in spot  along with shuttling information will be provided as the event nears.

The put in for the paddle is at Jaeger Park in McFarland.  Just south of Mcfarland you turn east on Exchange St, go about 0.25 mile and you will cross the Yahara River, turn north immediately  on Jaeger St. It dead ends at the park.  Take out is at Fish Camp. Turn east on County AB, again cross the river and turn into the Fish Camp Landing. 

Who: FREE and open to land trust supporters. You must register so we know how many to expect.

What: Two hour paddle on the Yahara with an expert. Followed by conversation with Richard Mccoy on the rich history of the Yahara. Click here to hear an audio recording of a book about an 1887 canoe trip down the Yahara River from Madison (see segment 4 03). 

What to Bring: Please bring appropriate clothing, water and your boat, canoe or kayak. Natural Heritage Land Trust's past president and paddler, Willi Van Haren, will lead an enjoyable paddle through the Town of Dunn on the Yahara River ending at Fish Camp County Park. 2017 marks the 20th year of Natural Heritage Land Trust's partnership with The Town of Dunn to permanently protect more than 3,000 acres. Everyone is responsible for bringing their own equipment.
