“As more people experience local rivers from a kayak or paddle board, they’ll appreciate what a natural asset the waterways are and the role they play in communities.” That’s the goal of Troy Cooper, the founder of Naperville Kayak, according to this profile in the Chicago Tribune. Cooper’s company, started in 2012, began running 60- to 90-minute float trips this summer, and they will continue into the fall, depending on weather.
