Down the Mississippi in a Leaky Canoe | WisCommunity

Huck Finn famously took off on a raft trip down the Mississippi. Others enjoy a luxury cruise down the river that divides America. Luke Yourzak decided to "thru-boat" the more than 2300-mile journey in a canoe. Join us on Thursday, October 27th to hear about his encounters with weather, aching muscles, interesting characters, a myriad of other river-going vessels and more. Yourzak hails from Sarona WI but is invested in traveling widely and embarking on one adventure after another. His talk is entitled "Down the Mississippi in a Leaky Canoe." This and other sessions of the Thursdays at the U Lecture Series are free and open to the public, thanks to financial support from the campus foundation. Each talk is 12:30-1:30, in the Blue Hills Lecture Hall (R234) on the UWEC-Barron County campus, located at 1800 College Drive in Rice Lake. Neither seating reservations nor parking permits are required. For additional information, call 715-788-6244 or email the organizer at (
