The Missouri River Adventure travels through the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument and historical lands of the Blackfeet, Gros Ventre and Assiniboine. Students will follow in the paddle strokes of Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery. During this 12-day expedition, students will be immersed in a powerful natural classroom and will participate in lessons including place-based ecology, conservation efforts on the Northern Great Plains, and history of current land use issues in Northcentral Montana. Students will have multiple opportunities to develop technical skills, personal growth, learn communication and decision-making skills and learn to navigate group living in a remote environment. They will also develop canoeing, backpacking and wilderness travel proficiency while practicing Leave No Trace® principles.
