Another Event - 3/19/2009 Northern Forest Canoe Trail Talk, The Arsenal, in Central Park

I'm posting for my friend John ( who posted this to NYC Kayaker & the Sebago yahoo group for his friend Ann Moore. Pardon the ugly links, I'm just doing a copy & paste & slapping this up on my lunch break. Like the 2 events I posted yesterday, this sounds like another way to partially scratch that "I'm ready for boating season but it's not quite here yet" itch. Or maybe it'll just make that itch even itchier. Either way, it sounds cool & here's the details!

Please join us for a talk by Kate Williams, Executive Director of theNorthern Forest Canoe Trail, the Arsenal Gallery at 6:30pm, March19th, 2009. The Arsenal Gallery is located at 64th Street nd FifthAvenue inside Central Park , NY .
