Video: Finnish-style Sauna in North America

For our program, we will show Garrett Conover's fine video about sauna culture in Maine. FACA president Gene Ollila became aware of Garrett's work and documentary, and has arranged to bring the video to FACA.

Garrett is best known as the cofounder of North Woods Ways, the classically resonant canoe and snowshoe guiding service leading wilderness trips in Maine, Quebec and Labrador from 1980 until 2007. He is author of Beyond the Paddle. His most recent book, Kristin's Wilderness, has won four awards.

FACA Event Cancellation Policy

If St. Paul public schools are cancelled due to bad weather, then a FACA event scheduled for that day will also be cancelled. FACA members may contact any Board member if they have a question about whether an event is cancelled.
