Outdoor Adventure Show a Success

Over the February 22–24 weekend, the Outdoor Adventure Show lured crowds of outdoor enthusiasts to Toronto’s International Place to shop for gear, learn new skills, plan upcoming trips and, of course, meet the crew and browse the latest issues at the busy Rapid Media booth.

The Rapid team sold 142 subscriptions in just three days, plus scores of single copies. And, even better, we had a chance to chat with readers about your favorite places to paddle, stories you enjoyed and more!

The Maine Island Trail Association is celebrating a quarter century of community building, stewardship and education with summer-long festivities and events. From mid-March through Labor Day, visitors and members can join in events ranging from a film festival and paddle race to island cleanups and an on-island photo contest.

Adventures that Give Back

Spaces are still available on upcoming conservation and service outings hosted by the Sierra Club. In June, members can travel to St. John in the Virgin Islands to assist with coral reef conservation, and in July the club heads to Alaska’s Prince William Sound to clean up tsunami debris that’s washed ashore on the region’s pristine beaches.
