Presentations

 The Natural History of the Canoe: From Dugouts to Courting Canoes

Bear - upstairs Fri 6:30pm-7:15pm 

Bear - upstairs Sat 2:30pm-3:15pm 

The story of the natural history of the canoe can be told using the dugout, the birch bark canoe, and the risque behavior in courting canoes early in the 20th century. This heavily illustrated talk will touch on the relationship of canoes with other historical trends such as relations with Native Americans, liberalizing social attitudes around the turn of the 20th century, and the role of canoes in the environmental movement. The presentation is drawn from our book Canoes: A Natural History in North America.
