July 29: paddling and weaving

 From Water to Land...
From Kayaking to Weaving!
 Thursday, July 29th,
9am Till Noon.
Join Lorén Spears, Tomaquag Museum Executive Director, 
for basket weaving ...
and WPWA's Kassi Archambault
for a gentle paddle up Frying Pan Pond!
Leaving land in the morning, we will enjoy the breeze coming off the river and the cool water. This wide section of the Wood River is great for beginners and absolutely beautiful. So far this season, osprey and painted turtles have been a common sight!  Kassi is a certified Kayak Safety Instructor. When asked, she can offer tips to improve paddling techniques. Lorén will point out traditional basket weaving materials present along the riverbanks. Late morning July heat will bring us into the WPWA Welcome Center for weaving. With plenty of space, materials and great guided instruction from Lorén, each teen and adult will complete weaving aspen splints into a small basket.
