6:30 workshop is: “Leave No Trace” – Bruce Hanat

Perhaps all of us have heard the motto ‘Leave No Trace’, but how many of us can be certain that we’re doing everything we can to follow those principles? Join us for our February workshop when Bruce Hanat presents an introduction to ‘Leave No Trace’. The workshop will include everything from a brief history to the obstacles that are still being encountered. In addition to being an ADK member, Bruce is also an instructor for the Boy Scout National Camping School, with a specialty in winter camping.

7:30 Main Program:"Discovery of an Early 19th Century Lake Ontario Schooner" - Jim Kennard

Jim Kennard, who along with his partner Dan Scoville have been diving and exploring the lakes in the northeast since 1970. They have found over 200 shipwrecks in the Great Lakes, Lake Champlain, the Finger Lakes, and the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. For our February meeting Jim will put on a presentation on the challenges they in countered in the discovery of a early 19th century Lake Ontario schooner the /Milan/, which is the oldest commercial vessel found in deep water on the southern shore of Lake Ontario. The schooner was built in 1845 and sank near Oak Orchard in 1849. The /Milan /was traveling from Oswego to Cleveland when it went down carrying its cargo of Onondaga salt as well as its crew to the depths of Lake Ontario. If time permits Jim will also discuss the British warship the HMS Ontario, the oldest shipwreck ever found in the Great Lakes which they discovered in May of 2008.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the club hotline at 987-1717 or go to www.gvc-adk.org. The meeting is handicapped accessible and interpreters for the deaf are available by calling 394-5856 one week before the meeting.
