On Saturday May 26, from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM, the Wisconsin Canoe Heritage Museum (WCHM) in Spooner (WI) will be celebrating Wisconsin Canoe Heritage Day. This free annual event marks the season opening of the museum and the unveiling of a new annual exhibit. The main attraction of the day will be the Canoe & Wooden Boat Show. A wide array of antique canoes, boats, and canoe related materials will be on display, with collectors, builders, and canoeing enthusiasts in general bringing their gems to display, trade, sell, or just simply talk about.
Due to a cancellation, one opening has become available for the spring paddle making class at the Wisconsin Canoe Heritage Museum on May 11-12, 2018. The class is limited to eight participants, and all the available spots filled rapidly when the class was first announced two months ago. But a last-minute opening for one person had now become available for this real hands-on experience, so quick registration is recommended. For more information or to register call 715-635-2479 or email to info@WisconsinCanoeHeritageMuseum.org.
In this two-day class participants will actually make a canoe paddle in a design of their own choosing, using traditional and modern tools and techniques.
