Snow shoes

On March 4, Bill Mackowski brought several snowshoes from his collection to show students in grades 6, 7, & 8. Mr. Mackowski has traveled all over northern Canada collecting handmade snow shoes and sometimes making replicas himself. He also gave a slide show to illustrate traditional snow shoe making techniques. This visit was sponsored by the Woody Wheaton Land Trust in Forest City, Maine.
