Join us for an online program with local expert Geoff Burke who will give an illustrated presentation on the history of canoes on Wednesday, March 24 at 6:30 p.m. online via Zoom.

The canoe was a remarkably sophisticated product of Native ingenuity that was produced from local materials and perfectly adapted for the exploration and settlement of large areas of North America. Geoff Burke will discuss the development, history and construction of the canoe in this role and its morphing into widespread use as a pleasure craft.
