Paddler Teresa Griffith regaled visitors with her tales

On Thursday night, August 16, the Museum played host to veteran paddler Teresa Griffith, owner of Flow North Paddling Company, as she regaled all those who attended with stories about her time kayaking and canoeing the Peace River in order to create the GeoTourism paddling guide of the river. She also spoke a bit about her time as Captain of GeoTourism's replica York Boat on its inaugural voyage in 2011.

Attendees were inspired by Teresa's speaking, because she brings personal experiences and feelings into her tales. Her experience is vast; she has spent many days paddling on the Peace River.

This talk was the perfect accompaniment to our current exhibit Paddling Through Time: 220 Years of Canoeing on the Peace, and the Museum thanks Teresa and her husband Darren for spending a wonderful evening with us.
