Portages Added to the Fox River for Increased Access for Canoers, Kayakers

By 2012, it will be possible to paddle from Lake Winnebago all the way to Green Bay. Thanks to the nonprofit Friends of the Fox organization, a major section of the river has now been made accessible to paddlers, and more work is underway.
