Paddling with Birch sm

Tom and Carol Heinrich of Hayward will present stories and pictures of their canoeing adventures that have bonded their marriage over 38 years. Their extensive canoe experiences have taken them from Wisconsin’s meandering meadow streams to large whitewater rivers of northern Ontario, Canada. Many of their adventures have been in the Woodland Caribou Provincial Park of Northwestern Ontario Canada, where big water lakes are dominant.

Come along to enjoy stories about camps, portages, weather, and water accentuated with humorous anecdotes about relations during canoe travels.

What We Do

earth  Land Trust Conservancy

Land trusts protect & preserve the natural environment by using conservation easements, mutual covenants, land purchases, donations, and volunteer efforts to permanently protect natural areas.  Couderay Waters Regional Land Trust works in northwestern Wisconsin to protect the intrinsic value of the northwoods.

lampConservation Easements

A conservation easement is a legal agreement between a landowner and a land trust or government agency that permanently limits use of the land in order to protect its conservation value.  You retain ownership, use and enjoyment of the land protected by the Land Trust.
