Earth Skills Summer Program To Become A Bushcraft Canoe Expedition In 2008

In 2008 the Earth Skills Summer Program will evolve from a skills course to a bushcraft canoe expedition on Maine’s Allagash Wilderness Waterway. We’ll spend a few days working on core skills such as basic canoeing, axe use and safety, fly and spin fishing, navigation, firemaking and trip planning, then we’ll spend the remainder of the time canoeing and living in the bush on the Allagash. We’ll combine poling, paddling, and lining canoes on our trip from Chamberlain Lake, up Allagash Stream to Allagash Lake, then down the rest of the waterway to Allagash Village. We’ll fish and forage along the way, as well as learn about the plants, fungi, mammals, fish, weather, and night sky. We’ll schedule enough time to explore the remote backwaters of the waterway that are seldom visited and teeming with wildlife, and along the way experience the slow, deliberate rhythm of life in the bush.

We’ll be updating our Earth Skills Summer Program page in the near future. If you have any questions about the program, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
