Sylvania - main floor Sun 10:30am-11:15am 
Chase and Meredith took off on their honeymoon in July of 2022 on the Hood River in Nunavut, Canada. Did their nuptials hold up against an Arctic canoe trip? Join them to hear about their 18-day, 295km canoe trip to the Arctic Ocean. This presentation will include photos, videos, and stories, to share the planning and preparation for their trip, wildlife encounters, plant species, and interesting geographic features. It culminates with unique footage of the navigation of rapids below Wilberforce Falls. The hope is that people will walk away recognizing that planning their next adventure doesn't have to be daunting!
