The Waters that Bind Us: Stories of Expeditions, Education, and Earthly Enjoyment
In the summer of 2018, 18-year-old expedition sea kayaker Alex Martin successfully completed the first solo circumnavigation of Lake Winnipeg, over 1,750 kms in total. In partnership with the Lake Winnipeg Foundation, Pimachiowin Aki UNESCO World Heritage Site, and CPAWS – Manitoba Chapter, Alex’s on-going dedication to water stewardship have focused on the community responsibility of water stewardship. Hear about his experience using outdoor adventure to foster nature connectedness among youth. Alex Martin is an urban forestry student in the UBC Faculty of Forestry and received one of the $100 bursaries awarded in 2020 to Nature Vancouver scholarship applicants (funds available thanks to a very generous donation by member John Coope).
