Presentations

 Canoe & Kayak Photography Tips

Whether on a long-distance paddling expedition or a short trip to a nearby area such as the BWCAW, chances are that you're going to witness beautiful sunsets and immense landscapes that you'll want to share. Sharing stunning photos can help instill a sense of wonder and awe for the beauty of wilderness and help convey the joys and trials of the trip to your friends and family. Unfortunately, practicing photography while on the water can be hard; water and electronics don't mix. Learn how to safely pack and use your cameras and get tips for shooting effective and beautiful photos.



 The Dark Skies of the Boundary Waters Region

The Boundary Waters region boasts some of the darkest night skies in the world. On the Bortle scale, a scale that rates the darkness of the night skies with 1 being the darkest and 9 the brightest, the BWCAW is mainly a 2, but it even contains a 1. It is dark. During the presentation, you'll see night images from the region, including Milky Way shots, star trails, and northern light images. You'll hear about the night sky and learn how to make night images of your own canoe or kayak trip.
