Habitat Hotel Kayak Tour | August

August 14, 2017 - 5:30pm to 9:30pm
boathouse at the corner of N. Water Street and E. Saint Paul Ave.
Milwaukee, WI

We’re so excited to announce another summer of paddling events with Clear Water Outdoor! Paddle along with Milwaukee Riverkeeper staff as they collect data on fish and other wildlife living in Milwaukee’s Harbor. For this paddle, we will meet at Clear Water Outdoor to be fitted for kayaks and paddle boards. We will paddle to several of The Harbor District’s “Habitat Hotels”. Habitat Hotels are recently installed artificial fish habitats located around Milwaukee’s Harbor.

At each Habitat Hotel, we will lower a GoPro Video Camera below the surface of the water with the hope of capturing video footage of any fishy residents. Following the paddle, we will walk to Milwaukee Ale House to download and view our video footage. Specific locations and number of Habitat Hotels that we visit will be weather dependent. Join us!

Please bring a flashlight or headlamp!
