Can You Canoe? Dugout Canoe Rides

August 27, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Sunday, August 27
11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Dugout canoes were a major form of transportation for Native Americans in the Eastern Woodlands for thousands of years. These vessels would be carefully crafted out of a single log using stone tools and fire, and have been known to survive for thousands of years. The canoes belonging to IAIS are recent recreations, which means we can take them out for a test ride every once in a while. Join IAIS educators at Warren Town Beach for a traditional dugout canoe ride as you dip your paddles into the past. No experience necessary. Participants will receive a commemorative sticker.

Pre-registration is requested. Please visit our website to register online. Questions? Please call (860) 868-0518, or email [email protected]. Cash or check required if paying in person on the day of the event.

$10 for IAIS members, $15 for non-members
