Hello, Wabakimi past, present and future paddlers!
A reminder that Friends of Wabakimi will have a table/booth in the non-profit table area of the exposition hall at Canoecopia, as in years past. Stop by to learn about the successful bird-song meter campaign in 2022, hear about developments to update FoW maps, and - best of all - tell us about your trips and ask us about our trips!
Past Wabakimi Project volunteers, Wabakimi paddlers and FoW board members will be gathered to welcome you, share their knowledge of the park with you, hear YOUR knowledge of the park, and invite you to join this incredible organization that documents canoe routes and advocates for the natural, cultural and historical resources in the Wabakimi Area.
Saturday evening, there will be a social happening (details at the table as they unfold); Sunday morning is the FoW annual meeting. All are welcome. Details are in the current newsletter available at the Friends of Wabakimi website.
Also Wabakimi-related, Vern will be presenting on the Big River Expedition that was a unique FoW / Ontario Nature collaboration to gather song bird migration / breeding data in the crown lands around Wabakimi (Fri. and Sun.), and Wabakimi Outfitters will be in the main exhibitor hall (N08).
We had a great visit at the FOW booth, bought a map and got some basic information to start looking into taking our first trip up there. Also stopped at the Wabakimi Canoe Outfitters booth and got some more information from Bruce. He marked our new map for us and gave us some ideas for trip planning.
As luck would have it, a couple from St. Cloud, MN was standing at the booth and they had done their first trip to Wabakimi in 2022 and absolutely loved it. We have some planning to do!
I think a paddle in, fly out trip is in our future. :)
