Meet Max the Moose

Max is the City of Dryden’s official mascot. He stands proudly in the trees at the visitor information centre along Highway #17. Max’s home is a popular spot with tourists, and many visitors from around the world come to take his photograph.

Max was an idea of Mr. Elwin Palmer, a past president of the Chamber of Commerce. Max was born (built) in 1962 and celebrates his birthday officially on July 19th. He is made of mesh, steel rods, concrete and a layer of lacquer – to protect him from the brutal Northern Ontario winters.
