Wild River Academy provides canoe expeditions along the Minnesota River. Trips stop along the route to interact with environmental organizations, community members, Dakota people, farmers, and State Park Rangers. This experiential learning opportunity not only enhances outdoor skills, it exposes participants to the social and natural environment in the Minnesota River watershed, encouraging a sense of peace and place. See the Expeditions page for more information.
