Sunday event to focus on canoeing opportunities.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is inviting you to explore the Canadian wilderness – simply by stopping Sunday at the agency’s Harrisburg headquarters.

The Game Commission on Sunday, April 8 will host another in a series of Cabin Fever Sunday events, this one focused on canoeing Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park.

Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn and Deputy Secretary for Parks and Forestry John Norbeck will join state game wardens and others at an event featuring canoeing displays and a presentation on Algonquin Provincial Park, a destination that boasts thousands of lakes, hundreds of miles of canoe, hiking and biking trails, two museums, an art center, 14 campgrounds and several lodges.

By presenting glimpses of past trips, Dirk Dixon, a longtime member of The Canoe Club of Greater Harrisburg, will provide insight into the excellent opportunities Algonquin has to offer.

Members of the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association also will be available to discuss paddling adventures and the variety of traditional wooden canoes and modern kayaks available for your outdoor enjoyment.

Displays and doors open at 12:30 p.m. The roughly 40-minute presentation starts at 2 p.m.

The Game Commission’s headquarters is located at 2001 Elmerton Ave., Harrisburg 17110.
