Dave and Amy Freeman of Wilderness Classroom are working their way across North America by kayak, dogsled, and canoe – and they are making a stop in Shelburne, Vermont on August 1st.
Dave and Amy will be giving a free public lecture and slideshow discussing their adventures over dinner at Bread and Butter Farm on Wednesday, August 1 from 7 to 9 pm. Bread and cheese will be provided. Burgers and salad will be available for purchase.
On Earth Day of 2010 Dave and Amy Freeman began the North American Odyssey, a three-year, 12,000-mile journey across North America by kayak, canoe, and dogsled. The expedition calls attention to North America’s waterways and wild places while actively engaging over 100,000 elementary and middle school students in their journey though the Wilderness Classroom website and school assemblies. After their stop in Shelburne, Dave and Amy will be on their way out to the Atlantic Ocean, finishing in the mangroves and coral reefs of the Florida Keys in April of 2013.
The Wilderness Classroom is a non-profit organization that strives to improve students' core academic skills and appreciation for the environment by introducing students to the wonders of exploration and wilderness travel through live, web-based expeditions and school assemblies.
