If you travel the wilderness in search of that perfect scene to paint, to capture that "shot" of a lifetime, or just to enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature, you should check out Churchill Rivers Canoe Outfitters Exclusive Environmental Fireplace.
Bill Mason was a Canadian naturalist, author, artist, film maker, and conservationist, noted primarily for his popular canoeing books, films, and art as well as his documentaries on wolves.
The idea for the Environmental Fireplace came from Bill. He gave the idea to Ric Driediger owner of Churchill River Canoe Outfitters located in Missinipe, SK, Canada. Ric spent years developing, testing and refining the concept. The result is a portable, lightweight folding firebox, which burns fuel much more efficiently and economically than a traditional camp fire, or other camp fire stoves.
This folding fireplace is ideal for the environmentally conscious canoeist. The Environmental Fireplace is made with a false bottom, which helps to keep it from warping and keeps the bottom from burning through. The false bottom also helps in insulate the ground from fire. When this fireplace is placed on some rocks it will not leave a scar, even if your fire is situated in thick moss. When boiling a pot of water, the fireplace requires half the wood of an open fire. Because the heat is so much more contained, even damp or poor firewood will burn. It is truly an Environmental Fireplace.
