Community Conversation features Dave and Amy Freeman's Year in the Wilderness

On September 23, 2015, Dave and Amy Freeman embarked on a year-long adventure in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Their hope is to protect the Boundary Waters from proposed sulfide-ore copper mining on the Wilderness edge, and to teach people about the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  They expect to travel more than 3,000 miles by canoe and dog team, and explore more than 500 lakes and streams throughout the year.

This month's Community Conversation features highlights from Dave and Amy's Year in the Wilderness, with hosts Joe Friedrichs and Jay Andersen.
