Slave River Paddlefest, Fort Smith NWT

Slave River Paddlefest
Check out these videos from the 2009 Slave River Paddlefest. This event is a positive protest against the proposed Slave River hydro dam to showcase the Zambezi of northeastern Alberta. Warm water, big rapids and wonderful hosts make the Slave a CAN'T MISS destination. These videos are 1.5 minutes each - perfect for e-mailing - please forward them to paddlers or friends who might be interested. - Kirsten Bradley, Fort Smith, NWT
