On September 23rd, 2015 my wife, Amy Freeman, and I embarked on a yearlong adventure in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness 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. During 366 in the Wilderness we travel more than 2,000 miles by canoe and dog team as we explore more than 500 lakes and streams throughout the year. We shared our adventure through regular blog posts on a variety of websites as well as social media.

We are excited to share Bear Witness with you. We hope you enjoy this 12 minute short film about A Year in the Wilderness. We are also working on a book about A Year in the Wilderness with Milkweed Editions! We encourage you to sign up to be notified via email when the book is released! We would also love to come bring our Year in the Wilderness to your community through fun and engaging live presentation. If you know of a school, organization, or business that might be interested in hosting us for a speaking engagement let us know!
