October Bus Tour Explores Origins of the Salmon River Susan Moore


n this spectacular journey, organized by Friends of the Salmon River (friendsofsalmonriver.ca), passengers will have the opportunity to look at the terrain of the upper and middle Salmon watershed in a new way, with the help of local scientists and advisors. Commentaries from a geologist, ecologist, historian and others will broaden our horizons, and the fall colours will accent our trip. The bus will take us up into the headwaters of the Salmon River, into the fantastic maze of the Kennebec Wetland

Complex where the Salmon River was born. We will stop for lunch in Arden (as well as several other informative stops) and continue down as far as the Croydon area, discovering on the way the

historical and recreational (e.g., kayaking and hiking) opportunities.
