On Earth Day (April 22) of 2010 Dave and Amy Freeman began the North American Odyssey, a three year, 11,700 mile journey across North America by kayak, canoe, and dogsled. Their goal is to use their journey as a platform for gaining support and protection for 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 Burlington, 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. After 10 years and numerous expeditions, the Wilderness Classroom reaches over 65,000 students and 1,800 teachers around the globe.
