Friends of the Fox River will conduct a series of ten guided, interpretive canoe trips on five different sections of the Fox River from spring through late fall. These trips will explore the river and its relationship with the land that creates it, and special natural areas along the Fox River. Get to know the Fox River from the river’s point of view!
Trip details vary depending on the trip and weather. For most trips we meet at the “put-in” at 9am, shuttle the cars to the “take-out”, drivers return to the “put-in” and we launch mid-morning. Trips usually end around noon to early afternoon.
You will receive an email with complete information for your trip following your registration.
Tour fees are for a guided and interpreted trip. These trips support the work of Friends of the Fox River to preserve, restore, and protect the Fox River watershed’s resources by connecting people with nature through education, research, restoration, and advocacy.
Canoe Trips will begin on Sunday, June 10, 2018 and continue on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month until the last trip on Sunday, October 28th. Experienced canoe guides will lead each trip. Trip fees are per person and include canoe, gear, a pre-trip paddling skills and safety review, and a few stories about the river, it’s history, it’s hero’s, and what’s going on with the river today.
Individuals and groups can arrange private, customized canoe trips by calling Gary at 773-590-0710 (cell 8a – 8p only please).
