CANTON — Begin Canton Canoe Weekend by heading to The TAUNY Center May 1 at 5:30 p.m. for a talk by Adirondack guideboat builder Chris Woodward of the Woodward Boat Shop in Saranac Lake, followed by a reception to celebrate the start of the paddling season.

Alongside one of his guideboats displayed in Traditional Arts in Upstate New York’s main gallery, Mr. Woodward will discuss the history and construction of this unique water craft. Made specifically to suit Adirondack waters, the guideboat is built like no other small craft. Woodward will explain what makes the construction unique and discuss the boat’s place in Adirondack and U.S. history.

The Woodward Boat Shop is on TAUNY’s Register of Very Special Places. Learn more about Chris Woodward, the Woodward Boat Shop, and the RVSP program at
