Eleven students from various states were learning the art of making
paddles Tuesday before using their craft on a canoeing trip along the
coast of Maine. Chris Knapp from Koviashuvik Local Living School in
Temple, (third from left) who also leads student expeditions for Kroka
Expeditions out of
Marlow, N.H., shows a student how to shave
the bluntly cut thick wood into paddles at a farm on Owen Mann Road in
Farmington. Conor Leary of Pennsylvania and Keats Dormont of Colorado
work on their paddles in the foreground. On a 14-day expedition, the group will spend three
days at the school making the
paddles, then travel to the Blue Hill Bay to tour the smaller islands
in large wooden canoes built by Kroka full-time students, Knapp said.
