Alder and Wild Rice Lakes


Join Manitowish Waters Historical Society (MWHS) members Kay Krans and Jim Bokern on a two-hour pontoon tour of Alder and Wild Rice Lakes. This trip will depart from Alder Lake and explore the rich histories of these lakes with a wealth of historic images. Discover the Native American trail networks, unique canal systems that linked the MW chain to Lac Du Flambeau, all phases of the logging era, a railroad spur landing, homesteads, early resorts, and businesses.

Limited space, so please register by July 22. $35 ($30 members of the DC or MWHS). Directions to the launch site will be sent to registered participants prior to the trip. Friday, 9:00 AM- 11:00 AM.

Please Note: Pontoon trips will have a max of 8 participants, along with a driver and program leader and it is required that you sign up in advance. It is also required that registered participants bring their own mask and wear it during the program, along with using hand sanitizer as you enter the boat. It will be best if you can sit with people you came with, socially distant from others (as best you can!). Participants will need to drive themselves to the start location of the trip (directions will be emailed prior to the trip). Do not come if you have had illness within 14 days of event (you will be able to receive a refund). NLDC reserves the right to cancel/refund if case levels significantly change and the program in deemed unsafe.
