Our speakers will be Alex Traynor and Noah Booth of Northern Scavenger.

In December of 2015, Alex Traynor and Noah Booth created Northern Scavenger with the goal of sharing videos of their trips in hopes of inspiring others to get into the backcountry. Each year they try to push their personal limits in both the trips they take and the quality of films that result from the trips. Some of their most notable video series include Wild Wabakimi, The Meanest Link, Canoeing Across Temagami, Nova Scotia Backcountry, and The Steel River - Lost Canoe Route to name a few. In July of 2019, Noah and Alex set off on their largest trip yet, a 35-day canoe expedition across Labrador along with Chris Giard and Dave Greene. The expedition, Boreal to Barrenlands - Traversing Labrador, was supported by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, MEC and Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism. The team traveled through 3 different eco-systems including sub-arctic tundra, crossed 3 regional Heights-of-Land and made them the first modern-day explorers to connect Menihek to Nain. The documentary and film series from this expedition will be released in 2020.
