To discover on the water or in a book
The nature surrounding Rapides-des-Joachims is so interesting and unique that it inspired Wally, a former canoe guide on the Pontiac region’s rivers, to write a book, The Last of the Wild Rivers: The Past, Present, and Future of the Rivière du Moine Watershed. Although he is now retired, his passion for the waterways in the west of the region is still present, particularly his passion for the Dumoine River. You can take the man out of the river, but you can’t take the river out of the man! Wally has also contributed in various ways to promoting the outdoors in the region, for example, by converting a former path in the woods to a hiking trail.
