EAGLE RIVER - Wednesday's weather made it the perfect day for a group of people to grab their paddles and explore some Northwoods waters.
The Northwoods Land Trust invited the community on a tour of private and protected waters.
People met up to paddle down Deerskin River in Eagle River.
Executive Director of the Northwoods Land Trust Bryan Pierce said Deerskin River is special because it's a trout stream and known for its resources.
"Our intent is to try and keep it that high quality keep the water quality protected and also provide for both fish and wildlife habitat," said Pierce.
Wednesday was also a celebration.
The Northwoods Land Trust also recently bought 40 acres of land to preserve.
About 25 paddlers got a chance to see the new land which people can only see by kayaking or canoeing to it.
"There's no doubt that it brings people together and gets them out of their comfort zone," said Eagle River paddler Eric Rasmussen.
Paddler's traveled through about nine different water preserves.
