On September 23, 2015, Dave and Amy Freeman embarked on a year-long adventure in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota. They documented their 365-day trip and used their adventure as a platform to educate others about the threat posed by Twin Metals and other sulfide-ore copper mines being proposed near the BWCAW. They traveled roughly 2,000 miles by canoe and ski with sled dogs, visiting over 500 lakes, rivers and streams throughout the year and will share their experience during this free presentation.
The Freemans have traveled over 30,000 miles by kayak, canoe and dogsled through some of the world’s wildest places, from the Amazon to the Arctic. National Geographic named the Freemans Adventurers of the Year in 2014 and their images, videos, and articles been published by a wide range of media sources from the CBC, NBC, and FOX to the Chicago Tribune, National Geographic, Outside, Backpacker, Canoe and Kayak and Minnesota Public Radio.
