Project Polar Bear - April 2 - 12, 2009

Between our Minnesota dogsledding season and summer BWCA canoe guiding season lies a wonderful opportunity for new adventure.

This year most of our guides are going north to dogsled around Hudson Bay. We call it Project Polar Bear. You can learn all about it with real time online multimedia updates thanks to Dave Freeman, Amy Voytilla, and the Wilderness Classroom.

Dave and Amy run the educational nonprofit called Wilderness Classroom. They are providing an online multimedia educational adventure on their website, and are sharing their resources to update Boundary Waters Blogger. You can find more on Project Polar Bear and educational info, audio, video, and lots of photos at the Wilderness Classroom website: http://www.wildernessclassroom.com/polarbear/index.html. The site is designed for primary school students to learn through this adventure, so tell your favorite teachers about this opportunity.
