Before the boat was launched this summer, restoration work was done on it by boat builder Mason Smith of Long Lake.
Beaver now serves as the flagship of a small fleet of guideboats used for educational purposes by the Interpretive Center.
BRING A BOAT
Anyone wishing to participate in the regatta should gather at 11 a.m. Saturday at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry’s Rich Lake Access off Rich Lake Lane in Newcomb.
Participants are asked to call the AIC at 582-2000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, especially if they are planning to bring a boat.
The college operates the Interpretive Center under the auspices of the institution’s Northern Forest Institute.
