Wilderness Inquiry, the National Park Service, and many other partners have teamed up to host the Great River Race on the Mississippi River. It’s a big race to fund the Urban Wilderness Canoe Adventures (UWCA) outdoor education program, addressing the achievement gap in our schools.
In six short years, the UWCA has served over 65,000 kids, getting them out on our nation’s rivers for outdoor learning experiences that are boosting academic engagement. We can do more if you come on board!
Participating is fun, easy and memorable! WI provides Voyageur canoes, paddles, life-vests, a guide to stern each boat, t-shirts and lunch.
Thank you to our 2014 sponsors!
