Don’t miss the inside story of the adventure of a lifetime, as told by Minnesota author Natalie Warren at The Park Center in Hayward, Wisconsin on Monday, August 2 from 7:00-8:30 PM.
After hearing Natalie speak about the practicalities of planning a canoe expedition and share stories of the pleasures, perils, and enduring wonders of the wilderness, you’ll want to grab a canoe paddle and head out for an adventure of your own!
In her book, HUDSON BAY BOUND: TWO WOMEN, ONE DOG, TWO THOUSAND MILES TO THE ARCTIC, Natalie tells the story of a modern journey along the water route first made famous by Eric Sevareid in his 1935 classic CANOEING WITH THE CREE and the relationships with places and people she built along the way. From snake nests to sweltering heat, polar bears, and paddling in unrelenting winds, the 85-day journey of the first two women to canoe the 2,000-mile route from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay was filled with twists and turns.
A lifelong paddler and river lover, Natalie has since canoed the length of the Mississippi River and won first place in the Yukon River Quest in the women’s voyageur division, paddling 450 miles in fifty-three hours. She is a contributing writer to outdoor publications, and has worked with Bancroft Arnesen Explore, Wild Rivers Conservancy, and River Management Society, along with starting a nonprofit to present urban rivers as natural, dynamic classrooms for youth.
This presentation is sponsored by Wild Rivers Conservancy, with generous support from Holiday Inn Express & Suites Hayward, The Park Center, and the Hayward Area Chamber of Commerce.
