Wednesday, 11/12/14 - Meet the Freemans, National Geographic's Adventurers of the Year, at the North Brooklyn Boat Club

Sorry for the lack of advance notice, this one totally snuck up on me.

Dave and Amy Freeman have a petition to protect the Boundary Waters (an area I've never visited but would like to someday, it sounds amazing) and they are paddling their petition (which you might mistake for a nice Wenonah canoe if you didn't know that it is in fact a petition) to Washington DC, collecting signatures as they go. They started in Ely, Minnesota on August 24th, and they'll be at the North Brooklyn Boat Club tonight from 5 to 8, with the presentation expected to start around 6:30. Should be fun!

11/13 update - Hey, if you missed the NBBC event, there's another chance to meet them, hear their story and sign the canoe-shaped petition - they'll be at Columbia University on Tuesday, 11/18. 8 PM, Hamilton Hall, 1130 Amsterdam Avenue, free and open to the public. Hosted by Columbia University Divest Climate Justice.
