The Early Summer issue of Canoeroots hits newsstands today, our special issue on the future of canoeing. Learn about the people and trends that are shaping the present to ignite the future, see how the Voyageur Wilderess Program thrives through three generations of magic and light, and then discover ten ways to encourage your children to actively engage in their surroundings.

Inside you’ll learn why the most important solo whitewater canoeing stroke is dead, how to outfit your canoe for a better night’s sleep, and why the reenactment of the Centennial Voyageur Canoe Pageant for Canada 150 is such a controversial event.  

In the gear section, testers weigh in on the Wenonah’s Spirit II tandem tripper and the Vunut 10 pack canoe, and we showcase two canoe carts that will make your next solo or tandem adventure more enjoyable.
