Armchair Traveler: From Greenville to Belfast, a 300-mile Paddling Journey

Wednesday February 9, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

In May of 2021, Jackie Stratton, her partner Nate and dog Maple embarked on a 24-day canoe trip from Greenville to Belfast. Primarily following the route of Henry David Throreau, Penobscot guide Joe Polis, and countless indigenous people, their 300+ mile padding journey included 8 miles of historic portage routes to connect the Kennebec Headwaters, West Branch, East Branch, and Main Stem of the Penobscot River. She’ll share about how they prepared, naturalist highlights, lessons learned, and what it’s like to be on ‘river time’.

Jackie Stratton lives in Montville, ME and is a self-proclaimed river enthusiast. She owns Waterways Guiding, offering overnight canoe trips and whitewater canoeing instruction. Register for This Event

With support from Bath Savings Institution.
