This spring the Freemans will return to the Amazon Rainforest to study the plants, animals, and people of one of the world’s last great wildernesses. The Amazon Rainforest is largest tropical rainforest in the world. This will be our 6th Learning Adventure in the Amazon and it is sure to be a class favorite. The amazing biodiversity and unique cultures of the Amazon region will provide us with a wide range of topics to explore.

An international team of educators and scientists will retrace Theodore Roosevelt’s historic journey down an unexplored river 100 years ago. The river was eventually named the Rio Roosevelt in honor of Theodore Roosevelt and his important scientific expedition.

The Amazon is home to a wide variety of plants, animals and cultures. This expedition be a great way to end the school year with something new and exciting to study and explore.


Dave Freeman is the Executive Director of the Wilderness Classroom. Dave and Amy Freeman have traveled over 30,000 miles by kayak, canoe and dogsled through some of the world’s wildest places. National Geographic named the Dave and Amy Adventurers of the Year in 2014.

When the Freemans aren’t on expeditions or conducting school assemblies, they guide canoe, kayak and dogsled trips.
