Adventure Assistant - Team Lead - Kingscote Outpost
I have spent most of my life living in, and exploring Haliburton County and surrounding area. I am passionate about my community and can often be found volunteering at or attending local events. I love spending time outdoors, on the water, at a campfire or gazing at the stars. I am an avid reader and crafter and will talk your ear off about astrology given the chance.
Adventure Assistant - Kingscote Outpost
Cold is — here at deep roots. They love fishing, kayaking and anything outdoors. They have a soft spot for animals and enjoy being out in nature. They are always down for exploring and any kind of outdoor adventure. They always have a positive attitude and will always greet you warmly and with a smile.
Kianna Kowalski Goff
Adventure Assistant - Kingscote Outpost
My name is Kianna, I am a very friendly animal lover who grew up enjoying every second I could outdoors! I have lived in Hastings Highlands for the majority of my life and love spending time in nature, where I enjoy anything from hiking with my three beautiful husky girls to swimming, kayaking, or even foraging and rock collecting! My other hobbies include crochet, baking, pottery, and tending to all my wonderful plants. I strive to make everyone feel welcome, and I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.
Guide & Adventure Assistant - Kingscote Outpost
Hey there, I am Ben – one of the guides at Deep Roots Adventure. I enjoy absolutely everything that involves the outdoors! This includes (but is not limited to!) canoeing, kayaking, hiking, foraging, bushcraft, nature interpretation, plant ID, tree ID and much more! When I am not doing stuff outdoors, I am in the shop making steel pendants, decorative items, and stone projectile points!
Greeter & Chief Snack Inspector
The ‘Fuzzy Rudder’, ‘August’, ‘Gus, ‘Gussie’, ‘Hey you get out of my lunch’, this little adventure pooch is a fixture at the Kingscote Outpost and at the side of owner, Corina. She likes to bark to let us know you are here, but she is friendly. Please let us know if you are afraid of dogs and we will keep her on leash for your visit. Feel free to utilize the ‘bribe jar’. We are dog friendly and welcome well behaved pooches!
Gidget Luna Linx
The Puuuurfect Paddler
This sweet fuzzball loves kayaking, paddleboarding, hiking and camping! She will on occasion come to hang out at the Kingscote Outpost, but don’t worry, as a Siberian Forest Cat she is mythically low in Fel d 1, which causes us allergy sufferers to well, suffer. Follow her and Augustus on Instagram to check out thier adventures @adventuresofgidgetandgussie. Meow!
