These women are teachers around the area and receive college credit for learning about the wilderness, spending the weekend canoeing, cooking and camping. Their canoe journey will take them from Wahpeton to Fort Abercrombie on Sunday.

“It’s just a great learning experience. Teachers then really get to network too. We have people from Moorhead, Fargo, West Fargo, so share ideas and what works in your classroom and then we could maybe use this that we did this weekend with our kids.”

The River Keepers donated all the tents and the equipment for the campout.
