CAMDEN – Coastal Mountains Land Trust will co-host an online Zoom presentation, From Greenville to Belfast, a 300-mile Paddling Journey, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, November 9 with the Camden Public Library.

In May of 2021, Jackie Stratton, her partner Nate, and her dog, Maple, embarked on a 24-day canoe trip from Greenville to Belfast, primarily following the route of Henry David Thoreau, Penobscot Guide Joe Polis, and countless indigenous people. Their more than 300-mile paddling journey included eight miles of historic portage routes to connect the Kennebec Headwaters, West Branch, East Branch, and Main Stem of the Penobscot River. In this online presentation Stratton will discuss about how they prepared for the journey, naturalist highlights, lessons learned, and what it’s like to be on “river time.”

Jackie Stratton lives in Montville and is a self-proclaimed river enthusiast. She owns Waterways Guiding, offering overnight canoe trips and whitewater canoeing instruction.
