The Missouri River Adventure provides multiple forms of adventure and opportunities to develop technical skills and personal growth. During this 12-day expedition, students will gain new communication and decision-making skills while traveling as a group through remote sections of northcentral Montana. They will develop canoeing, backpacking and wilderness travel proficiency, while learning about conservation efforts on the great northern plains surrounding the river corridor. This expedition is buoyed in history as students travel to historical Blackfeet, Gros Ventre and Assiniboine camp sites and follow in the paddle stokes of Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery. Students will be immersed in a powerful natural classroom and will participate in engaging lessons ranging from place-based ecology and history to the current land use issues in northcentral Montana.
