The Leon H. and Clymene M. Bond Foundation, Inc. (Oconto, Wisconsin) has awarded the Peshtigo School District a $12,000 grant to assist in the installation of an ADA compliant kayak launch on Trout Creek. Kayakers and canoers will have immediate access to the Peshtigo River and the great views it provides. Kayaking and canoeing are already part of the Peshtigo School District’s curriculum and the launch will improve the access and safety for students and community members.
Superintendent Rau stated, “The impact of the ADA kayak launch is enormous as it will provide access to ALL students and community.”
The Bond Foundation grant along with the fundraising efforts of the Peshtigo Chamber of Commerce and Wild Goose Kayak Club will provide funding for the ADA compliant launch, parking, lighting, kayaks, storage racks, and safety equipment.
Rau added, “The district is beyond grateful for the support of the Bond Foundation, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Wild Goose Kayak Club.”
