I have lived on Lavergne Bay, Chats Lake area of the Ottawa River since 1984 and have many stories/experiences about my life on the mighty Ottawa!
I collect at three sites:
1. Lavergne Bay at the mouth of DeWolfe Marsh
2. Mouth of Mississippi River near Osprey Nest
3. Mouth of Madawaska River near Fish and Game Club
During the summer of 2016 I had the opportunity to do testing in the Canadian Arctic and along the western shore of Greenland.
