Our next tour is a River Heritage Tour —a 2.5 hour voyageur canoe trip down the North Saskatchewan River! This time, to keep it interesting, we will be focusing on the environmental and ecological history of our beautiful river valley.
Billie, our tour guide, has pulled together a one pager on the areas she will be referencing during the tour. We will have a couple of copies but if you want a perfect primer for the trip check out this link: Historical River Float Sept 2015
The voyageur canoes are contracted through Haskin’s Canoes and we’ll be bringing along Billie Milholland of the North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance as our tour guide. Billie will guide us along significant points of interest through downtown’s natural and human made vistas. This is a rare chance to experience Edmonton’s ecological history from the vantage point of its earliest waterborne explorers!
