We regret that the event, Kenny Salwey: Tales of a River Rat, has been canceled. The number of registrants is far from meeting our threshold to move forward with the event. Our regrets for any inconvenience that this cancellation has incurred.

Kenny Salwey is the last of a breed of men whose lifestyle has all but disappeared in this fast-paced, high-tech digital world. He earned a tough living off the land, close to nature and the Mississippi River. For 30 years, this weathered Wisconsin woodsman eked out a living running a trapline, hiring out as a river guide, digging and selling roots and herbs, and eating the food he hunted and fished. Today, Salwey is a master storyteller, environmental educator, keynote speaker, nature writer, and advocate for the Upper Mississippi River. He has presented his true-life adventures and words of natural world wisdom to adult and young adult audiences across the upper Midwest. By sharing his hard-learned experiences, his respect for the Mississippi River, and his love of the natural world, Salwey hopes to inspire his audiences to protect this precious and fragile ecosystem. Books will be available for purchase and autograph at the end of the program.
