Online PR News – 19-September-2012 – Boston, MA – Wilderness Classroom adventurer/educators Dave and Amy Freeman kayaked into Boston Harbor yesterday. The intrepid couple has spent the past two years kayaking, canoeing and dogsledding across North America with 75,000 elementary and middle school students taking part in the expedition online. They still have about eight months of paddling left to complete this one of a kind adventure as they work their way down the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S. Their final destination is Key West, Florida, which they expect to reach in April of 2013.
Dave and Amy are in Boston now, seeing the sights and giving presentations about their expedition at local schools. They are available for media interviews. They plan to depart from Boston on Wednesday afternoon, weather permitting.
On Earth Day (April 22) of 2010 Dave and Amy began the North American Odyssey, a three year, 12,000 mile journey across North America by kayak, canoe, and dogsled. The purpose of their expedition is to highlight North America’s waterways and wild places while actively engaging elementary and middle school students from around the globe in their journey though their website and school assemblies.
