September 2017 Business Member Spotlight – Milwaukee Kayak Company
We’re shining a light on Milwaukee Kayak Company this month – sponsors of our 2017 Milwaukee Boat Parade!
Milwaukee Kayak Company (MKC) was one of our very first Business Members and works with Milwaukee Riverkeeper team to put on a number of cool and fun events that help connect people to the amazing rivers throughout our Milwaukee River Basin.
MKC sponsors our Paddle & A Pour guided paddles throughout the summer months to encourage people to explore, learn, and connect with all three of our rivers. MKC has also captained a cleanup location for our Annual Spring River Cleanup since 2014!
We know when people get outside and enjoyour three rivers, they start to care about our three rivers. That’s why we’re thrilled MKC offers $5 off single kayak rentals for any Milwaukee Riverkeeper individual members – paddle on Milwaukee!
Thanks, Milwaukee Kayak Company, for helping us achieve swimmable, fishable rivers for future generations!
“We are truly advocates for the river. And we want to get people out on the river because then they start taking care of it,” she says. “Then their friends come, and they take care of it. It’s kind of a chain reaction.” [quote from 88.9 Into the Wings feature on Milwaukee Kayak Companyquote from 88.9 Into the Wings feature on Milwaukee Kayak Company]
