We’re got two new programs for ESSP alumni coming in 2009. The first is a practicum, where people gather at our Bushcraft And Sustainability Field School for a week (or two) to get back in touch with the bush life. It’s an opportunity to spend some unstructured time working on subjects of interest, prepare for the Maine Guide exam, or just camp, fish and enjoy the amazing Aroostook River and surrounding territory. The cost will be getting to Masardis, food and personal kit. The dates are July 12-17.
The second program is an alumni canoe trip. This will either be on the Allagash or the Aroostook rivers, and will be a week of canoeing and camping. Figure on poling a lot of it. There will be a minimal cost for the trip, depending on where it is and what gear is rented. The dates are July 19-24.
So plan to be in northern Maine for one or both. For more information and to join the discussion, visit our online network.
