||Vern Fish is the former Executive Director of the Black Hawk County Conservation Board in Waterloo, Iowa. He serves on the board of directors of the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation Board, the Conservation Corps of Minnesota/Iowa and the Friends of Wabakimi.

A passionate paddler he has run wild rivers from the Mexican border to Hudson Bay and north to the Arctic Circle.
The Wabakimi Area is a vast, virtually-roadless wilderness that includes almost 10,000 square miles of land and water in northwest Ontario. Sandwiched between the cascading falls of the Albany River and the steep walls of the Ottertooth Canyon, the area includes more than 4,000 miles of historical canoe routes. Because of its sheer size and complexity, the Wabakimi Area is a challenging area to visit. Fewer than 700 paddlers enter this wilderness annually. Learn how the Friends of Wabakimi can help you explore and protect this remarkable wilderness.
