Maine Canoe Symposium June 7-9, 2019



    Audience Instruction on land Paddle Making    

On-Land Workshops generally do not require sign ups. They are presented at various locations on the Winona campus. On-Land Workshops comprise approximately 60% of the total number of workshops presented, so there are always activities available for everyone to participate in.

    Fly fishing Instruction on water Poling class    

On-Water Workshops generally do require you to sign up. Since these workshops involve being in canoes and taking lessons on the water they have limited room. Most lessons are limited to between 4-8 participants per session, the number allowed varies with what is being taught and available canoes and other resources. On-water workshops comprise approximately 40% of the total number of workshops presented. The limited sign-ups for each workshop guarantees participants a low instructor to participant ratio. Everyone will get a lot of personal attention.
