Wilderness Inquiry, the National Park Service, and many other partners have teamed up to host the Great River Race to Close the Gap on the Mississippi River. The big race funds the Canoemobile Minnesota outdoor education program, addressing the achievement gap in our schools and reaching 15,000 kids annually.

Participating is fun, easy, and memorable. No prior paddling experience necessary. We provide Voyageur canoes, paddles, life-vests, a guide to stern each boat, event t-shirts, and lunch. Read about past races here.

Can Do Canines Fall Graduation @ Can Do Canines

Can Do Canines Fall Graduation @ Can Do Canines

Join us at our Fall Graduation Ceremony. This one-of-a-kind event recognizes and honors the effort put into training each assistance dog team.

The ceremony represents the culmination of a long journey for the team. The puppy begins training in volunteer homes or at one of five Minnesota and Wisconsin prisons where they are reared and taught basic obedience and early assistance dog skills. After around 18 months, they return to Can Do Canines for final training with staff and to begin their new life with a person with a disability.

Graduates receive diplomas in recognition of graduating from our program, and their assistance dogs receive their very own “doggy diploma”(nylabone).

All are welcome and no RSVP is required. Join us for a heartwarming event!
