History Happy Hour on the Fox River
Enjoy hearing about St. Charles History as you cruise along the Fox River aboard a St. Charles Paddlewheel boat. Appetizers, cocktails and history trivia included.
Fox River EcoCruise
Join us on a St. Charles Paddlewheel Riverboat trip up and down the Fox River to interpret ecological sightings. Learn the natural history of the river as the scenery floats by; spot local wildlife and ponder the challenges the river faces today as staff naturalists narrate the tour. Class will begin with an introduction to local ecology before boarding the riverboat for a 11/2-hour cruise for ages 18 and older.
Birding by Boat
Spring is a great time to observe migrating warblers and other species from the comfort of a St.Charles Paddlewheel Riverboat. During this 90 minute excursion we will scan the trees and shoreline for birds and other wildlife as they forage in the fading sunlight. Naturalists will narrate the program and help spot hard-to-see species. Please bring binoculars if you have them and dress for the weather as the riverboat’s top deck is open.
