Mississippi Paddler Returns from 70-Day Trip
A Northwoods paddler has returned from a canoe trip down the Mississippi.
Eric Immeler and ten others left in September to paddle from the Mississippi headwaters to New Orleans. The group interviewed the people they met along the way about the role the river plays in their lives. WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski spoke with Immeler about his reflections on the journey that ended two days before Thanksgiving.
The trip was organized by the environmental education group Wild River Academy.
Eric Immeler grew up in Woodruff and now lives in Minneapolis.
