The purpose of the Fox Wisconsin Heritage Parkway (FWHP) is to exemplify and promote the natural, recreational and historic resources within the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers corridor and create additional opportunities for history interpretation, education, recreation, and tourism.
We are a non-profit 501c3 organization which was formed because we felt an obligation to tell the stories of this great river system. So much of why we are here stems from these waters, and there are many interesting stories to be shared.
We also felt that the river was not being utilized for recreation as much as it could be along some stretches. We saw this as a lost economic development opportunity and so are creating or upgrading access points to include those that may be accessed by all abilities.
Then there is the conservation need. These rivers have worked hard for us for centuries, and we value that as part of our heritage as well as our future. Balance in caring for this great resource is the key to it continuing to be a resource for us into the future.
These are the philosophies that guide our work.
To meaningfully preserve, promote, and celebrate our river heritage while promoting vibrant and connected riverfront communities.
Vibrant riverfront communities connected by the rich and varied heritage they share.
