End Of The 2023 Field School Season | JMB Podcast 119

lining canoes on the Wilderness Canoe Expedition Semester

Recorded on November 20, 2023. We just wrapped up the field school season, and in this episode I look back and reflect on the experiments we ran during 2023. I discuss the Expedition Instructor (XI) as a continuous 6-month, residential program, moving the Wilderness Canoe Expedition Semester back to May and the high waters of spring, and moving the spring semester to summer. Listen to find out how these things worked out. I also discuss the many seasons of biting flies of northern Maine and the upgrades we made to the field school this year.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
