Help Name Our Big Canoes!

Some of you may have seen, or even already paddled in, our 25 foot canoes that we obtained via GCEF funding to deliver on-water environmental education. They are amazing boats: large, stable and able to comfortably and safely carry more passengers than our regular sized canoes. But they are new and thus nameless. So, in order to give each boat a little character and help distinguish one from the other we will be naming the two big canoes in the coming weeks; and we want you to help!

To suggest names for the two boats use the form here (paired names are encouraged).

We will pick from the suggestions and announce in the coming weeks; deadline for submissions is July 20th, so get cracking!
