W.J. McCabe Chapter

Natalie Warren "Hudson Bay Bound"

For our monthly program, Wednesday, February 3, we are inviting all to attend a special presentation by Natalie Warren that same evening at 7 pm at Erlenbach Lecture Hall in Swenson Hall, University of Wisconsin Superior.

Natalie is a gifted speaker who gave the keynote address at the Minnesota Division annual  convention at Spirit Mountain in 2013. She spoke about her 2011 canoe trip via the Minnesota River in Minneapolis all the way to Hudson Bay. It was a reenactment of Eric Sevareid's epic journey on the same route in 1930 and documented in his book, "Canoeing with the Cree". She gave a superb presentation that was enjoyed by young and old alike!

Natalie is on a mission to connect students with the land, the water and themselves through outdoor recreation. Through wilderness experience she wants students to develop a love for Minnesota and the outdoors, especially our rivers and their connection to land use!
