The lore and beauty of wooden canoes and the people that love them, the members of the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (woodencanoe.org), a national non-profit dedicated to preserving wood canoe heritage, are among the 40 or so online Zoom presentations planned for the 2021 Quiet Adventure Symposium in February.

The presentations planned cover great trips, paddle routes and hikes, personal adventures, on the water safety, programing for kids and many other outdoor adventure topics.

This year’s 26th annual event, formerly known at the Quiet Water Symposium, will be held online over five nights due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each evening offers two parallel sessions with new speakers every 30-minutes. The first presentations begin at 7:00pm and the final two speakers begin at 9:00pm.

The 2021 event starts on Tuesday, February 16 and will continue on Thursday,
February 18. Presentations will come to you the following week on February 23
and 25. Saturday, February 27 at 7:00pm brings the Grand Finale, concluding
with a concert by Jerry Vandiver. The tentative agenda can be found on the symposium website: https://quietwatersociety.org/

Have a conflict one night during the virtual event or not sure which great
presentation to watch? Do not worry, registered attendees will receive links to
view the presentations once the event is over. The cost to register is $10.00. Direct any questions to Tammi Connell at EventManager@quietwatersociety.org.
