Today we picked up the remaining gear we require for our trip from the Lakehead University Outdoor Rec Rental Depot!
We are so grateful to the Outdoor Rec Depot and Lakehead University School of Outdoor Recreation, Parks, and Tourism for their generous donation of a rental canoe, bear barrels, GPS, SPOT messenger, and other equipment!
A huge barrier to wilderness tripping is access to affordable equipment. Many people are unable to go on canoe-trips because of these costs. It is extremely humbling that the University and their staff have recognized this by helping us to fulfill our vision for this project.
We hope to visit some undergrad Outdoor Rec classes this Fall and share our experience!
