Paddle Trip on the Pagôntegok (Contoocook) River

Participants are invited to paddle down the Contoocook River and learn about how the river was the primary mode of transportation for Native Americans. Tribal members will point out features, and participants will be given a waterproof map that highlights Native American presence and activities along the Contoocook. Participants will meet at the Jane Lewellen Bandstand in Contoocook Village and will use their own equipment to paddle to Bohanan Farm and back to Contoocook Village. Following the paddle, participants are invited to the Society to view locally found stone tools and our current exhibit, "What we have learned from the Abenaki Trails Project."  Please arrive at the Jane Lewellen Bandstand by 12:45 pm. Registration is not necessary.
