Join us for a walk from Big Bend to the northernmost point of the Portage Path. You’ll learn about the history of this vital link between North American waterways as we walk, then enjoy a talk at the northern terminus by artist Peter Jones. Jones created the statues of the portaging American Indian which can be seen at both the northern and southern termini of the Portage Path. This program is presented in coordination with the Portage Path Collaborative as part of a series of events in honor of North American First People’s Day. SR/Big Bend
