Introducing '19 WCS Speaker Leanne Robinson from Yellowknife


Long trips and little ones is an oxymoron. Or is it? Prior to the arrival of their first child, Leanne Robinson and her spouse Dwayne Wohlgemuth had paddled and hiked several multi-month trips through the NWT. When their son arrived, they decided to not let something as small as a toddler stop them. 


Leanne Robinson hopped in a canoe early with her family near Owen Sound ON but didn’t really get into canoe travelling until she moved to Yellowknife, NT, where her love of canoeing was fostered by the uncountable lakes and rivers of Canada’s Northwest Territories. With her spouse, Dwayne Wohlgemuth, she has completed several multi-month paddling and hiking trips. When their son Emile arrived, they were determined that something as small as a toddler would not stop them. In 2016, they, and their 1-year old completed an 1100 km loop that took them from the community of Whati, north to Great Bear Lake, and back via the traditional Idaa trail to Behchoko. On the trip, Emile learned to walk, identify and pick berries, and feel at home in a canoe. Leanne Robinson is now a mother of two young ones, both who were taken on multi-day canoe trips before the age of two months, and is dreaming of how and where they will teach the second child, Aleksi, to walk.
