  Robert Rolley & Karen Mesmer



Robert Rolley recently retired after 34 years as a wildlife biologist. Retirement allows him to devote more time to photography, paddling, birding, and traveling.

For thirty-three years Karen Mesmer was a teacher and inspired middle school kids to love science, both in northwest Alaska and Baraboo, Wisconsin. Since retirement she works with teachers and school districts as a science education consultant. She started paddling a canoe when she was a kid and for the past twenty years has paddled rec boats on small rivers and sea kayaks on bigger water.

When Karen and Robert got married, their biggest problem was figuring out what to do with their 7 boats. Their solution was to build a boat house.



Presentations

 A Kayak Mothership Adventure in Patagonia
Sylvania - main floor Sat 11:30am-12:15pm 

Come join Robert and Karen on a kayak-mothership adventure to the fjords of Chilean Patagonia. With a mothership, you never have to paddle into the wind and always have a warm, dry boat to come back to. Paddle with seals, dolphins, and a multitude of seabirds along the mountainous coast. Enjoy fresh seafood and fine Chilean wine on the boat, as well as lamb roasted over an open fire while visiting an Estancia. Visit Laguna San Rafael and see icebergs and glaciers up close. An adventure not to be missed!
