Timothy Johnson Founder’s Float in Johnson Creek is now a VIRTUAL EVENT!

The Timothy Johnson Founder’s Float, produced by the Johnson Creek Historical Society, is now a virtual event to promote flexibility and social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The fundraising float, originally scheduled for June 27th along the Rock River, is happening now through September 30th on any body of water.

The 2019 Float was recently featured on Discover Wisconsin and you may watch the Johnson Creek episode here.

PADDLERS BEING FILMED FOR DISCOVER WISCONSIN AT THE 2019 FOUNDER’S FLOAT ALONG THE ROCK RIVER:

The original float along the Rock River was to follow the same stretch that Timothy Johnson, Johnson Creek’s founder, famously traveled on his way south from Watertown to Johnson Creek. You can learn more about the history of Johnson Creek by visiting the Johnson Creek Historical Society’s webpage: www.johnsoncreekhistory.com

With more folks looking for things to do in and near Jefferson County during the pandemic, this event is the perfect way to be a tourist in your own hometown and discover some picturesque Wisconsin waterways.

Registered paddlers have from now until September 30th, 2020, to complete a paddle and submit proof of completion by email to [email protected] Your paddle (via kayak, canoe, rowboat, etc.), may be of any length, on any body of water, on any date. Can’t get more flexible than that and it’s a great way to get outside, be active, and help a local Jefferson County nonprofit!

Your $20 registration fee for the 2020 Founders Float Virtual Paddle will contribute to ongoing projects at the Johnson Creek Historical Society Museum.
