Share-the-Lake Day is an annual sponsored event that offers nursing home inhabitants an outdoor lunch and a day out on the lake. I have always enjoyed spending time with elderly people because I find their wisdom and experience to be incredibly intriguing and fascinating. I loved listening to their stories of which they were extremely content to share. To see their eyes dance as they recounted a fond memory from their youth or witness their excitement when I mentioned various thoughts of mine that reminded them of a favorite family member or close
History of Waterways Wisconsin is home to many large bodies of water. It borders two great lakes: Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. The western border is made up of both the St. Croix River and the Mississippi River. The treasured Wisconsin River runs through the state, and according to Sweeny-Justice (n.d.) the land has 15,074 lakes (only 40% are large enough to name). The upper Wisconsin River was dammed around 20,000 years ago when the western part of the Green Bay Lobe advanced into the Baraboo Hills (which was discussed earlier in reference to Devil’s Lake State Park).
This geological deposit was an important part of their heritage. Minnesota also had the geology to support many fur bearing animals. The fur business is an important part of Minnesota history.

“Swartswood is known for its great fishing and peaceful surroundings. Whether you are on land or water, there is always a chance you will catch a glimpse of the spectacular wildlife, including bald eagles” (Swartswood Lake). The bald eagle is well suited in its home of Swartswood Lake due to the high abundance of fish. The bald eagle has even made a nest on little Swartswood lake so in the future there will probably be many more bald eagles in this area. “The population growth of eagles in New Jersey — 14 new pairs were found last year (2013), six of them in northern New Jersey — is a long way from the decade of the 1970s when there was just one active nest
They established a rich culture of farming the floodplains of the rivers and streams in the watershed of Lake Lanier, which historically yielded abundant harvests. In the early 1800s, settlers flocked to homesteads in the rolling hills, pushing the Cherokee Indians farther and farther westward. The Gold Rush of 1828, with the discovery of gold near Dahlonega, Georgia, in part, helped to largely hastened the flow of settlers into the Lake Lanier region. The ultimate removal of the Cherokees from Georgia by the federal government came in 1838, and their subsequent relocation to a reservation in Oklahoma cemented the way for settlers to take their

As crazy as it might seem, bridges haven 't always spanned the Willamette Valley 's waterways. Dating back to the mid-1800s, these heavily trafficked highways led travelers from the budding Rose City to ferries that, for a fee, carried people, livestock, wagons and cars across various rivers. Throughout the state 's history, more than 500 of the boats traversed Oregon 's rivers and lakes. "Almost every pioneer community, especially those in the Willamette Valley, was tied to the rest of the territory by roads or trails crossing at least one waterway on a ferry, so ferries were essential facts of life," wrote the late Charles F. Query in 2008 's "A History of Oregon Ferries since 1826." Today, only a few remain, including the Canby Ferry,

Lumbermen and millers began looking to the falls as the resources of hydropower for saw mills and flour mills; making Minneapolis the first in the nation in flour production and third in lumber.
