The Lower Mississippi River is the longest free-flowing river in the continental United States, stretching 1,154 miles from St. Louis, Missouri, to the Gulf of Mexico. Chris Battaglia spent nearly two months filming and paddling with the Quapaw Canoe Company on an expedition celebrating the completion of The Rivergator. The Rivergator is a mile-by-mile paddler’s guide written for canoeists, kayakers, stand-up-paddleboarders, and anyone else plying the waters of the Lower Mississippi River in human-powered craft. Led by John Ruskey and the Quapaw Canoe Company, this expedition brought paddlers into 30-foot, voyageur canoes, over the course of six weeks. The expedition paddled 20-60 miles per day, camped and cooked over open fires, met interesting people, weathered storms, survived trees falling, and more. Experience the wilderness between the levees with a presentation of photographs, sounds, and a sneak preview of the upcoming film!

Chris Battaglia lives in Portland, Maine, and is the owner of Village Vitals, a resource for interdisciplinary creative, collaborative, and community-focused work. He is currently producing a feature-length documentary about the Lower Mississippi River and the 2017 Rivergator Expedition.
