ISLAND FACTS

Mississippi River, near mile 832

This privately owned island is approximately 22 acres (9 hectares)
Down river from Minneapolis & Saint Paul, above Hastings Minnesota USA
We access it by houseboat & canoes
Nestled within the Mississippi National River Recreation Area
Leased for summer 2018 then formally purchased November
Caleb spent the summer on the river, & testing the model
This spring he purchased 2 smaller downstream islands
He will call them "Hope" and "Hoppiness"
Caleb has been dreaming about an island since he was 11 years old
His reasoning: land predators won't swim on & bunnies wont swim off so safe place to train comfort rabbits
He works & accepts donations to pay the monthly mortgage in addition to providing for the rabbit's feed and care
Island is named after Paxton Peacebunny, his first endangered rabbit
The plan is to supervise up to 24 visiting rabbits at a time, in gender-separate trips
Ferried houseboat bought with entrepreneurship contest winnings
The newly chartered Sea Scout Ship #202 trains youth about boat safety; all have  passed the Coast Guard class & have boat operators permit
Island is not open to the public as a tourism destination, but we're working on model to have guests go "island hopping" with us in the future
