A Year in the Wilderness

Amy and Dave Freeman during the Year in the Wilderness Expedition

In 2014 National Geographic named Dave and Amy Freeman Adventurers of the Year. The next year they embarked on a year-long adventure in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness to raise awareness about the threat posed by Twin Metals and other sulfide-ore copper mines being proposed near the BWCAW. In this presentation, they will share stories and insights from their year in the wilderness.

Join us for a series of three lectures to celebrate 40 years of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. All three lectures will be held at the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute beginning at 7 p.m.
