The popular voyageur replica canoe trips on the Wisconsin River hosted by the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway Board will not take place this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.  The trips, led by Executive Director Mark Cupp, have become an important part of the Riverway Board’s education and outreach programming with waiting lists generated for most trips.

          Cupp explained, “We waited until the last possible day to make the tough call to cancel the 2020 voyageur canoe trips in the hope that the coronavirus guidelines for gatherings and physical distancing would be relaxed by late June and July.  Unfortunately, with the restrictions currently in place, it is simply impossible to achieve compliance with the guidelines in this case and, therefore, we have to forego the trips for this year.”

          “I know many people will be disappointed, but we will look forward to returning with a full slate of trips in 2021.  The are many other wonderful ways to explore the Riverway through outings with family and friends, whether on the river, backwaters or hiking on the 50,000 acres of public lands in the lower Wisconsin River valley. Follow proper safety precautions, respect the river and always wear your life jacket,” said Cupp.
