Books at Symposium
USED BOOKS from George Luste collection (donated to Canadian Canoe Museum) will be available for sale again, thanks to the efforts of Jeremy Ward and CCM Team. Expect to see similar set up as in the past few years. Thank you, Jeremy!
NEW BOOKS, DVDs and CDs from '19 WCS Speakers, as well from some past WCS speakers, will be on sale at the usual place in the auditorium.
SPEAKERS - past and present - look for an email from Konstantin-Hari Hadziristic (our main book sale co-ordinator) with an invitation to bring/send your publications/dvds/cds for sale at the Symposium. Thank you, Hari! Thank you Erika Bailey for planning the smooth transition.
NEW - Book Donations
Our friend, Bert Ross, loved Algonquin Park. When he died last year I inherited a lovely collection of
books: Early Days in Algonquin Park by Ottelyn Addison; Exploring Algonquin Park by Joanne Kates;
Along the Trail in Algonquin Park with Ralph Bice and many more will be available for you to purchase
 at the WCS in February.

Perhaps you have a similar book collection you could donate? Maybe you have recently Kondo-ized your book shelves? Your unwanted canoeing and wilderness-themed books will spark joy at the WCS used book table. This year’s proceeds will help finance digitizing past WCS presentations. Please contact Hari if you have books to donate (
There were 45 registered volunteers last year,  way more than I could fit into a single image. You are all amazing and absolutely critical for the success of WCS. Your skills and sacrifices are appreciated by all of us! The reward, as shown in this image, is cold pizza in the loading dock :) Can we do this again? Here's the list of 2018 Volunteers - if you're on it and can help again, no need to do anything. I'm already counting on you! If you can't make it, for whatever reason - do let me know. If anyone else is available to help in '19 - email or phone me.
Not WCA Member?
You should be! Even if you live far away and can't participate in local outings and events, you'll receive Nastawgan - a quarterly journal of Wilderness and Canoe Association. Nastawgan and Che-Mun (sadly no longer available) are two best publications about canoeing in the wilderness. Send me a note if you want to get a sample copy!
In the Next Nastawgan
Carly Rivard, a recent university graduate and aspiring veterinarian from Wizard Lake, Alberta, joined her nine peers and professors Morten Asfeldt and Les Parsons on a 21-day canoe expedition on the Hood River, Nunavut. WCA members can read her story "The Hood River Hypothesis" in the Winter Nastawgan. Thank you Bob Henderson for connecting all the dots!
