Trips and Tours

2017 upcoming tour into the Minesing Wetlands

The Friends of Minesing Wetlands will lead our spring paddles into the Minesing Wetlands on April 29rd and May 6th.

April 29 RSVP with Dave:
dfeatherstone@nvca.on.ca

May 6 RSVP with Kristyn :
Kristyn.Ferguson@natureconservancy.caWe only take 12 guest boats per trip so RSVP early!

We meet at 8:30 a.m. (latest) at the Willow Creek Canoe Coral on George Johnson Road (County Road 28) in Springwater Township. Upon arrival we off-load our canoes and shuttle our cars to the end destination which is approximately 15 minutes away. This should put us on the water for 9 a.m. The trip will take approximately 5 hours including a lunch break.

Dress appropriately for the weather conditions of the day, which should include high cut boots or rubber boots for possible portages. Also, bring extra clothing in case you get wet. Bring your own warm drinks, snacks for along the way, and a packed lunch for our break around noon.

At least a basic paddling knowhow is required for this trip. All boats must be equipped with paddling safety equipment: lifejackets, bailer, whistle, light and throw rope. We do not rent equipment however if you need a boat there are local outfitters to rent from.

The cost is $40 for non-members and $20 for members. This includes safe passage with certified leaders and ecological interpretation of the Minesing Wetlands.
