THE WAY OF A CANOE: Paddle, Portage, and Study of the Life of a Legendary Wilderness Advocate
(Taught in the Minnesota Wilderness)
[Colorado College] EV260/HS 202, BLOCK A, JUNE 5 - JUNE 23, 2006

Study the life, writings, and philosphy of Sigurd F. Olson - perhaps the most compelling and articulate wilderness advocate of the last century.

Read Olson’s best-selling books and meet with scholars, environmentalists, and others who knew him well.

Take a ten-day canoe trip in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota - paddle and portage amongst the very lakes that Olson loved.

Around the campfire, delve into Olson’s philosophical musings, study his role as a conservationist, and try your hand at the type of nature writing which Olson pioneered.

Participate in a volunteer trail maintenance project in conjunction with the US Forest Service.

No camping experience necessary.
