WTS Paddle Share

01:00 PM - 05:00 PM Central Standard Time

Join WTS MN on a multi-modal adventure down the Mississippi River to explore the innovative Paddle Share program and riverfront redevelopment, located right in our backyard! Partnerships between the National Park Service, the Mississippi Park Connection, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB), and the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization have created the first pilot paddle share on the Mississippi River, in a national park, and in the country.

Susan Overson, National Park Service Paddle Share Program Manager, will join us to share her experience with the development and implementation the paddle share program. Carrie Ann Christensen, Senior Planner at MPRB, will share insights and about the project and how it development of the riverfront aims to connect people to the river.

We will continue the conversation on the water, using paddle share boats to kayak from North Mississippi Regional Park south to Boom Island.  The kayak portion of the trip will end at Boom Island where we will use Nice Ride bicycles to bike back to our starting point at North Mississippi Regional Park. Nice Ride passes will be provided at Boom Island. Public transportation is also available from Boom Island, if participants wish to use personal bicycles, or depart the group at Boom Island after the conclusion of the tour.
