27th Wilderness Paddlers Gathering

March 8, 2019 - March 10, 2019

Learn – Connect – Get Inspired

In the early 1990s, a group of Vermonters traveled on snowy and icy roads to attend the Wilderness Canoe Symposium in Toronto. After one particularly harrowing trip, they wondered if they could replicate the format of the event in Vermont. This year, NFCT’s Executive Director Karrie Thomas will share her experience paddling with kids and how to be flexible in responding to the conditions Mother Nature can dish out; NFCT’s Stewardship Director Noah Pollock will run a boat repair workshop; and NFCT thru-paddler Peter Macfarlane will share tales of paddling the trail the “wrong way” on 3/8 at 9:30AM. Learn more about this year’s event here.
