Location: offsite, Root River

Rain date: September 21

For families with children over the age of 9, but adults are welcome. 

Help clean up the Root River, a 43-mile-long tributary that flows into Lake Michigan at the City of the Racine, with the Kenosha Museums! Participants will paddle kayaks and collect trash together as we enjoy the beauty of the river bank. A scavenger hunt and prizes for the most trash collected will be awarded. All guests will be required to wear life jackets. This program is provided in partnership with the Root River Environmental Education Community Center. 


Online sales end two days prior to class due to supply needs for the instructors, please call the Museums (262-653-4140) to inquire if registrations are still available.
