Introducing '19 WCS Speakers Rodney Fuentes, Glen Caradus, Don Watkins and Avery Hinchcliff
The “Adventure in Understanding” is a co-ed program for 16 to 18 year old First Nation and non-native youth that was organized by Don Watkins of the Rotary Club of Peterborough Kawartha in co-operation with  Camp Kawartha, the Canadian Canoe Museum, and Curve Lake First Nation.
Sixteen year old Avery Hinchcliffe, a Peterborough high school student, paddled with eight other non-native Canadians, three international students, and nine First Nations students on the 5th annual  trip  this past August.
Over six days, five nights, the twenty program participants and four leaders travel by voyageur canoe 100 km up a section of the Trent Severn Waterway. There are many opportunities for the paddlers to connect with each other, and with the land and water around them, and the rich history of the Mississauga Anishinaabe of Curve Lake First Nation as they travel the ancient water highways of the Kawartha Lakes area.
Rodney Fuentes is a documentary filmmaker with a passion for nature and outdoor adventures. Before moving to Canada, Rodney spent half his life exploring the neotropical rainforest and guiding birdwatching tours in his native country, Venezuela. Rodney is also a paddler and an outdoor explorer with vast experiences in the tourism industry. Rodney has worked and volunteered for several NGOs including the Venezuelan Audubon Society, Phelps Ornithological Museum, Birds Studies Canada, and the Peterborough Field Naturalist Club. Rodney lives in Peterborough, Ontario.
