Quetico Foundation Canoe Day on Big Creek Benefits Student Summer Research Program

Thirty canoeists attended Quetico Foundation’s Canoe Day. We canoed along the Big Creek valley through the Carolinian forest with its verdant trillium carpet and flowering trees, past rolling landscapes with streams and wetlands that feed the headwaters of the Big Creek National Wildlife Area.

Many genuine thanks to each canoeist and everyone for your support of the Quetico Foundation’s Student Summer Research Program on our paddle along Big Creek, Saturday May 7, 2016. As well as for good, wholesome and fun conversations and great canoeing among a great group.
