Presentations

 A Natural History of the Canoe in North America

Bear - upstairs Sat 4:30pm-5:15pm 

Caribou - upstairs Sun 1:30pm-2:15pm 

The most important vehicle of transportation in the history of much of the continent was the humble canoe. From the pre-white settlement period of birch barks and dugouts, through all-wood, wood-and-canvas, and modern synthetics, Mark Neuzil and Norm Sims will trace the fascinating history of the watercraft. Included will be a shift from the canoe's role as a working craft to a leisure-time activity. In an era of kayaks and stand-up paddle boards, what's next for the remarkable boat?
