It's MWM's Spring Expo time! April 28 - 30

Once again, the Friends of Wabakimi table will be fully staffed all three days with FOW members eager to help answer your questions. The newly revised and updated Planning Map will be available to purchase, as well as the Wabakimi map book volumes and the route book. Samples are available to see at the table before you decide what to purchase. Nice stickers for your canoe will also be available. New member specials being offered. The table staff will be a wide range of Wabakimi-interested men and women. Some are past participants of Phil Cotton's Wabakimi Project (ended in 2018), some are newer paddlers in the park, and some have never been and look forward to going this summer or in the future.

Vern Fish will be presenting back-to-back on Sunday afternoon, with the first talk about packing for safe backcountry trips, and the second being a general talk about Wabakimi Provincial Park.

We will also be hosting an informal social at the Town Hall Brewery (sign-up at table or email me, as a reservation is requested) on Saturday of that weekend (April 29) at 6:30pm.

You can visit the Friends of Wabakimi website for more information, and also to access the link to this Sunday's Trip Planning Webinar, which will be a fully-stocked roundtable of Friends of Wabakimi members discussing a wide range of topics to consider when planning a Wabakimi trip.

The Friends of Wabikimi is a Canadian not-for-profit organization formed by Canadian Phil Cotton as an outreach arm of his Wabakimi Project. The organization exists to preserve historic paddling routes in the Wabakimi region, work to protect the fragile boreal ecosystem of the area, and educate interested paddlers about the provincial park.
Stop by the table and say hello!
