Enjoy a relaxing evening of floating on the lakes at Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary! Each event will begin with a brief refresher on how to canoe followed by a nature presentation on the lake. Spend the last half hour exploring or just relaxing in your canoe as the sun sets and the moon rises. After each event, stick around for snacks and drinks.

Program Fee: $8/person or $20/family
Hunt Hill Members: $6/person or $15/family

Registration is required no later than 2 days before each program. Call 715-635-6543 or email program@hunthill.org.

Canoe events are open to people of all ages and canoeing abilities. However, canoe programs take place at the Hunt Hill waterfront, which is at the bottom of a set of 60 stairs built into the hillside. If you have any concerns about your ability to go down and up the stairs, please call Hunt Hill in advance.
