During late August and early September, 1958, the author and Mr. Irwin L. Simone, instructor in physical education at Grinnell College, took ten undergraduate students on a 23-day canoeing trip through the Lac La Croix area in southern Ontario. The purpose of the trip was to survey the plant life of the area from both taxonomic and ecologic viewpoints, and three semester credits in biology were given by Grinnell College for the course. The preparations necessary and the journey itself are described. In addition, the teaching techniques are dealt with.
