200th Anniversary of Alexander Henry's Adventures Publication
"On the 26th of August, we reached the Portages a la Vase, three in number .... Their name describes the boggy ground of which they consist. In passing one of them, we saw many beaver-houses and dams; and by breaking one of the dams, we let off water enough to float our canoes down a small stream.... These carrying-places, and the intermediate navigation, brought us at length, to the head of a small river, which falls into Lake Nipisingue." Alexander Henry Travels and Adventures in Canada and the Indian Territories Between the years 1760 and 1776 Published by I. Riley, in New York: I. 1809.

Virtual Voyageurs Series
We are very proud of our Canoe and Portaging community and while we would normally be meeting everyone at our Canoe Night event, we've made the change to virtual presentation series from experts in all things outdoors. All the events are free to attend and we are looking forward to coming together to celebrate the opening of the water and trail systems for the Spring.
