35th Wilderness & Canoe Symposium www.wcsymposium.com 21-22 February, 2020 York University Toronto This annual symposium is a mid-winter gathering of kindred spirits in search of knowledge and a sense of place. Its purpose is to educate and remind us of how sacred, fragile, and endangered the remaining natural wilderness areas are, and to celebrate wilderness experiences in our northern Canadian habitat. Each speaker offers a unique perspective on far-ranging topics that include subjects such as ecology, First Nations, guiding, history, unique trips, conservation, etc.
STIRT, ALAN – and Wendy Scott and friends have been wandering, somewhat aimlessly, over the Quebec/Labrador landscape since the late 1970's. Al particularly loves the open, nearly treeless areas near the Northern Quebec/Labrador border, but often finds himself in the middle of alder thickets. He has been a woodturner for over 40 years and has travelled far and wide teaching and giving turning demonstrations. You can find information and photos from both aspects of his life at: www.alstirt.com
