Waterway Jay has solo canoed or kayaked 30 of the 34 state water trails mapped by the Minnesota DNR and will discuss how his project Paddle for Progress began, what he has learned about our rivers, and the current state of water in Minnesota.  Jay will share stories, photos, and ideas for how individuals and groups can become involved with the needed solutions to protect and preserve our water.
