Join us for our annual celebration of National Canoe Day on the Trent Severn Waterway!  Festivities include free lockage for the day, all gear and guided paddling instruction, and our School of the Wild Arts  programs, with plein air painting, wild edible and medicinal plants, family portraits with the lift locks, bushcraft skills and more!

Inspired by old-timey images of canoes filling the lift locks, we've been running our canoe critical mass for national canoe day ever since The Land formed back in 2012.  In 2016, we partnered with Parks Canada and the Canoe Museum to answer a simple question: how many boats can fit into one of the tubs of the TSW Peterborough Lift Lock? We were overwhelmed by the curiosity this question evoked as paddlers from all across the province, neighbouring states, the UK and even Australia joined us to take part in the experiment.

The answer on that day was 138: a new record for our Lift Lock!

Last Year, we tried to fill both tubs with 150 boats each to celebrate National Paddling Day on our nation's 150th birthday.  Again: mission accomplished!  

Aren't you curious to see what is in store for 2018?
