Gear raising

On Sunday, August 11th @ 7pm, come to the field behind Waterfall Arts in Belfast to commune under the gothic arches and support the Village Canoe with your old gear for donation or current gear items for loan.

Many folks are helping outfit our trip of 12 people for 10 days, including Apeiron Expeditions, The Apprenticeshop, and Maine Sport Outfitters. Because the trip takes place during “high season” for many outfitters, and this is a first-year venture - entirely grant funded - we are still on the hunt for some expedition essentials.
