Dear Canoe Builders, Friends, and Supporters:
Greetings! This is a reminder that Week 2 of the Birch Bark Canoe Project will meet tonight: Monday, May 20th, at the Ely Folk School from 5-9 pm. Our focus tonight: 1) Moving the new canoe from storage to the newly renovated “North Classroom” (we will need a crew of at least six people), and 2) crafting two 20-foot-long cedar gunwale caps. Ongoing work includes crafting ribs, planks, and pegs as well as numerous tasks for finishing the canoe by mid-August. Memorial Day Weekend: No Class – Have an Enjoyable and Safe Holiday! (We resume on Monday, June 3rd.) See the BBCP 2019 Schedule.
