November 12th: Dave + Amy Freeman



Please join NBBC as we welcome National Geographic Adventurers of the Year Dave and Amy Freeman on their epic 100 day journey from Minnesota to Washington D.C. to raise awareness about pressing environmental risks happening within the beloved Boundary Waters. Dave and Amy will be landing that afternoon, so come give them a warm welcome and hear a brief presentation about their trip thus far and importance of protecting wild areas. We will have fire and food on hand and folks will have an opportunity to sign their petition, which happens to be their 20 foot canoe in which they are paddling to D.C.

The event is free and open to the public – bring your friends and family!
