Travelling by Canoe with Little Ones: by Leanne Robinson

Harvesting Food from the Land: by Dwayne Wohlgemuth

Admission Free - Donations Welcome

Leanne Robinson hopped in a canoe early with her family in Owen Sound ON but didn’t really get into canoe travelling until she moved to Yellowknife, NT, where her love of canoeing was fostered by the uncountable lakes and rivers of Canada’s Northwest Territories. She and her spouse, Dwayne Wohlgemuth rely on what nature provides and what society discards. They now have two little ones, both whom were taken on multi-day canoe trips before the age of two months, they are dreaming of how and where they will teach their second child, Aleksi, to walk.

*PLEASE NOTE - due to work at the Library, this Indoor Meeting will be held at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, coffee and social time from 6:10 pm.
