The Power of the River takes viewers on a historical journey that begins with the melting of the last glacier and ends with a group of energetic kayakers transiting the De Pere Lock. The Upper Fox River is part of a 12,000-year-old route that leads to the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico. The Lower Fox River is a wonderful 39 mile stretch of river for boaters and fishermen, an electrical power source for homes and industry, 17 locks and a magnet for fish and wildlife. A recently completed one-billion-dollar cleanup has done much to return this treasured resource closer to its former splendor.
