(SAINT PAUL, MN) – Join the Rotary Club of North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale on December 2nd at 7am to learn more about Madison Eklund and her 1,700 mile adventure from Minneapolis, USA to Manitoba, Canada along the Hudson Bay by kayak. She was the first to complete this historic route solo. Along the way, she connected with the local towns and promoted environmental conservation through water samples taken for the state of ND. Her blog, Expedition Alpine, brought her incredible journey to the world and allowed others to follow along through stunning photos and videos accompanied by journal logs.

This free Hybrid Event will be hosted at The Salvation Army Lakewood Temple and online via zoom.

RSVP is required at https://nstpmo.org/bay
