PADDLING BEYOND THE POINT

A Connected Journey

About The Journey

Former LSWC employee and nursing student Peter Greve is embarking on a two week, 300 km paddling journey along the east coast of Lake Superior from his hometown of Sault Ste Marie (on the St. Marys River) to Wawa (Michipicoten Bay) in August 2021. Along the way, Peter will visit special protected areas (such as LSWC’s Gargantua Islands Preserve) and explore our relationship with Lake Superior through reflection, interpretation, and conversations with locals, friends and family. The journey will be documented with photos, videos, and audio that will be shared to promote conservation, increase public knowledge about Lake Superior, and inspire others to challenge themselves in the outdoors. The journey is unsupported and all sponsorship or financial support is encouraged to be directed to LSWC in the form of donations. 

A Map of The Journey

"Growing up spending summers on Goulais Bay, I’ve always dreamt about 'paddling beyond the point', out onto the big water of Lake Superior to explore what lies beyond.  Likewise, I’ve always wanted to visit Parisienne Island, the island that was only visible on the clearest of days from Goulais Bay.  As a place that originally sparked my interest in understanding the vastness of the lake, I hope to paddle there early on my journey if the weather allows."
