Walk a Mile in My Wet Shoes
A Special Project by Canoe kayak NB
The extensive PowerPoint presentation will provide a historical & geographical understanding of the project to restore six (6) ancient native portage trails in New Brunswick.
The New Brunswick waterways & landscape make it clear why the canoe propelled by either or both the pole and the paddle, was the quintessential instrument of travel in New Brunswick. The transformation of birchbark to the simplistic and beautiful birchbark canoe was fundamental to travel through the skilled adaptability of native peoples.
The viewer will be witness to some of the breath of the work to date, since the formal commencement of the project in February 2008, as well as future work required and an expanded future vision. Some verbal direction can be provided to assist the viewer with directions to consider utilizing a portage trial for a terrific outdoor experience. The presentation aims to inform and motivate; motivate viewers to re-create a living history, motivate viewers to walk, portage and/or paddle, motivate the viewer to walk a mile in my wet shoes.
Tuesday, March 19 @ 7:00pm at the Rotary Lodge in the St-Anselme Park
I just saw the most recent presentation of this project at the Saint John Museum on March 31, 2016. It sounds as though they are not yet fully set up with a way to relay all the right information (GPS points, trail conditions, directions, etc) however the project seems to be coming along nicely. Really cool stuff and glad to see some folks getting involved in this. Another entry added to my "Must Paddle" list.
