Bear Paulsen feels at home exploring wilderness areas throughout North America. He loves canoeing and winter camping because they allow him to take long, extended trips into remote areas. He happily backpacks too. He's spent four years of his life hiding from the real world in tents and under tarps. He has paddled extensively in Ontario, Manitoba, and the BWCA, as well as trips in Saskatchewan, Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, and the Yukon. Winter camping has taken him to four Canadian provinces and eight states. Bear is the General Manager of Northstar Canoes.



Presentations

 BWCA: What You Need to Know

BWCA - main floor Fri 5:30pm-6:15pm 

Algonquin - main floor Sun 11:30am-12:15pm 

Find out everything you need to know about paddling in the BWCAW. Bear will share his knowledge of permits, routes, wilderness tripping techniques, and mix in a dose of BWCA history. He'll give you hints on avoiding the crowds whether you're base-camping or travelling daily. He'll also share ways to avoid the two most threatening parts of canoe country - bugs and bears.
