Canoe Trip Plans? How can we help? Conservation and the Future?

Connecting with you is important because Friends of Wabakimi (FOW) wants to be responsive and help people enjoy this wilderness area.  We want to know what people like you need from our organization.  In addition, we would like to encourage you to consider ways you can help us, by joining or renewing your membership, by reporting on trips you make, or by contributing in other ways.

To address these issues, we are asking you to take a short survey.  You may choose to do so anonymously, but for us to answer your questions or to contact you, please consider providing your name and email contact information at the end of this survey.    If a question is not pertinent to you, just skip over it.

More information about the Friends of Wabakimi, current Strategic Plan, planning resources, maps and conservation efforts can be found at www.wabakimi.org     Thanks for your interest!
