When: June 2, 2015 from 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Paddling the Horton River in the Arctic:
The canoeists are Ted and Freda Mellenthin who live in Mission, BC. They are internationally known for all of the northern and arctic rivers they’ve paddled and they recently published a book. In 2007 Ted and Freda plus two other women paddled the Horton River from its source to its mouth. Then continued along Franklin Bay in the Beaufort Sea to Parry Peninsula, crossing the peninsula by going upstream on a creek and portaging over the mountains to the east side into Darnley Bay. From there they paddled to the community of Paulatuk and flew out on a scheduled flight. Ted and Freda join us to share their journey. It took them 26 days to paddle 728 kilometres.
Doors open at 7pm, meeting at 7:30. Public welcome.
