Mark Neuzil | Canoes: A Natural History in North America

Date: August 13, 2023

Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Location: Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center

Event Description

Mark Neuzil is a professor of journalism at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.
He is the author, co-author or editor of eight books, almost all with environmental themes. A former wilderness guide and summer park ranger, he is currently working on a collective biography of nature writers with a Minnesota connection.

Ancient records of canoes are found from the Pacific Northwest to the coast of Maine, in Minnesota and Mexico. If a person from those distant times might encounter a canoe of our day – whether birch bark or dugout or a modern carbon fiber marvel – its silhouette would be instantly recognizable. Mark Neuzil tells the story of that singular American artifact, the canoe, so little changed over time, with such a strong connection to the Arrowhead Region.

All presentations are family-friendly and free to the public.

Donations are always appreciated.

Take your time driving up the Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway!
