Boreal Explorations

Boreal Explorations

Monday, July 8, 2024 to Friday, July 12, 2024

Come on a tour of the Mantario Wilderness Zone with botanist and canoeist Charles Burchill and co-leader Gillian Brennan.  Spend 5 days exploring and learning about the boreal forest through paddling and hiking day trips. Get to know the ecology, edibility and uses of plants found in the area.  Just enjoy the wilderness with the comfortable Mantario Cabin as your home base.

Dedicated to the memory of Cam Stacey, a long-time Mantario volunteer who would have loved this trip.

Trip Leaders

Charles Burchill is an avid paddler and field botanist with a keen interest in exploring. He has been a leader with the Mantario program since the 1990s and has enjoyed paddling and exploring the region for many years.

Gillian Brennan loves to spend time in the wilderness doing a wide range of activities. She has been paddling to Mantario since 2007, when she first signed up for a summer program trip with her son. This beautiful and tranquil island has been a special place to her ever since.  She looks forward to sharing it with you this year!
