Pedal to D.C.: Boundary Waters explorers Dave and Amy Freeman

Explorers Dave and Amy Freeman are currently towing a canoe while bicycling 1,750 miles from Ely, MN to Washington D.C. to raise awareness of the threat from sulfide-ore copper mining proposed in the Boundary Waters watershed. They'll be stopping at our store to promote their award-winning book, A Year in the Wilderness. From listening to a wolf pack run through their campsite as the lakes were freezing around them in the late fall to watching the loons return as the ice melted in the spring, the Freemans’ engaging presentation will transport you into the Wilderness and inspire you to help protect this national treasure for future generations. Come ask questions, support the cause, and sign their petition/canoe.
