TAUNY, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York, invites the community to a guided paddle and brewery outing in Tupper Lake, NY on Saturday September 16 from 7:00am-4:00pm. The day will start at The TAUNY Center where a bus will take participants to Tupper Lake for a morning paddle and then lunch at the Raquette River Brewing Company. The group will return to The TAUNY Center after lunch. The cost ($60 or $50 for TAUNY Friends) includes transportation, a 2-person canoe rental, and light snacks. Lunch and drinks at the brewery are not included. The cost is $40 if you bring your own boat. Interested participants must pre-register by September 11 by calling 315-386-4289 or at the TAUNY Folkstore online (tauny.org).  


TAUNY’s current exhibit, “‘Look Down, You’ll See Our Tracks’: Raquette River Dam Stories,” tells the stories of the dams and powerhouses built along the Raquette River in the 1950s and more recently. But what about the dams that weren’t built? One alternate plan for the river would have left much of Tupper Lake as we know it under thirty feet of water. This day trip will include a chance to paddle the Raquette River in Tupper Lake and learn all about this other possible history, on the very spot, with river guide and historian Mike Prescott. Ride the bus from TAUNY to Axton Landing in Tupper Lake, paddle down the Raquette River back to Raquette River Outfitters, hop back on the bus to Raquette River Brewing Company for lunch and craft beers, and then ride on home by late afternoon. Up to 10 2-person canoes provided by Raquette River Outfitters. There is a maximum of 12 boats or 20 participants.  Liability/release forms will be required. Life jackets required for everyone on the trip, no exceptions. Open to ages 16 & up.


The bus leaves from TAUNY in Canton at 7:00 AM and will return to Canton around 4:00 PM. Please check the TAUNY website or Facebook page on Wednesday for a rain date decision if needed.


Paddle tour guide Mike Prescott is a former history teacher and secondary school principal who found a new retirement avocation in paddling Adirondack waters and exploring their history. He is a New York State Licensed Guide, and he also volunteers with the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, the Raquette River Blueway Corridor, the New York State Trails Council, and the Adirondack Mountain Club. Mike is also the voice of the WPBS-TV documentary about the Raquette River dam builders, based on TAUNY’s oral history project and current exhibit on the same topic.


This program is a part of the program series for TAUNY’s latest exhibit, “‘Look Down, You’ll See Our Tracks’: Raquette River Dam Stories.” This exhibit tells the stories of people involved in or significantly affected by the construction of the hydroelectric dams and powerhouses along the Raquette River. The exhibit will be on view at The TAUNY Center until October 21, 2017. Additional information about this and other programs in the exhibit program series can be found at tauny.org.


This program is made possible by the support of Raquette River Outfitters.


The TAUNY Center is located at 53 Main Street, Downtown Canton, NY. TAUNY, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York, is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people understand and appreciate the folk traditions and local culture of everyday life—present and past—in the North Country. To do so, TAUNY seeks to research and preserve a record of diverse groups, customs and traditions; to recognize and empower traditional arts and artists; to identify and promote regional identity; and to provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn about folklore and culture. More information is available at tauny.org.
