Join Biosphere guides to kayak the Pickerel and French River outlets and explore an ecological gem within the biosphere reserve. Geologically, glacial melt waters have carved wondrous formations in the rock. Learn about the role of coastal wetlands and biodiversity, cultural harvests and trade routes and see how this ecosystem responds to the recent forest fire.
The myriad islands of the French River delta are a delight to paddle and entertain a desire to get just a bit lost, knowing that our comfortable camp is waiting. The site of a recent fire is our teacher, showing how nature is changed and responds under these conditions. Our five days will be divided between paddling and relaxing: reading a book or playing guitar, swimming and just soaking up that Georgian Bay feeling. This trip is generously hosted by White Squall Paddling Centre and will be a partial fundraiser for the Georgian Bay Biosphere with some proceeds donated to GBBR.
