MAGPIE RIVER, QUEBEC
August 6-16, 2005
In August, Richard joined Eric Hertz of Earth River Expeditions as well as members of the Waterkeeper Alliance and the Canadian and American press for a whitewater rafting expedition on the Magpie River in Quebec, Canada.
The purpose of the trip was to bring attention to the environmental issues facing the Magpie region, a pristine wilderness known for its breathtaking whitewater which is the target of a proposed project that would build hydroelectric dams along the river.
Below are some pictures from Richard's whitewater adventure in Quebec.
