Wooden Canoe Heritage Association at a Glance
A Bit of Background
The Wooden Canoe Heritage Association began 40 years ago as a way to unite the wooden canoe community as well as to educate the general public about the beauty and history of these wonderful watercraft.
2021 WCHA Calendar
Enjoy the beauty of wooden canoes all year long with this beautiful 2021 wall calendar. Each month features a stunning image of a unique wooden canoe in a natural setting. Every month you will be inspired to build, restore, or paddle a special canoe! Images are 12” x 9”, and calendar is 12” x 18”, open.
Looking for that special decal to finish off your restoration? How about a shirt or hat with the WCHA logo? Maybe you've been looking for a particular instructional or informational book. You'll find it all in our store.
This is a golden opportunity to get together with members in your own area. Socialize, share ideas, work together on a build, or just go paddling and enjoy the scenery and each other. Local chapters are the backbone of the WCHA. Get involved in one today!
Paddling, seminars, assemblies, building projects and more. There are many events each year to take part in either on the Chapter, Regional or International level. Keep up to date on them here.
"Everyone must believe in something. I believe I'll go canoeing."
