Wilderness Inquiry in canoe

Wilderness Inquiry

Get your students excited about the outdoors. Sign up to have your class on the water in our 24-foot Voyageur canoes–or learn on land in any number of disciplines. Get history lessons on native peoples, fur traders, and European settlers. Take a deep dive into the human impact on water systems while learning about local plant and animal life. Let us teach your students more about how the geology of an area affects human development. The possibilities for outdoor learning are endless.

Our Canoemobile brings outdoor learning to you. We provide all of the safety equipment you need for a day outdoors. Paddle trips take place in our large, beautiful, cedar strip canoes. Plan for a day on the water or set up a short canoe trip with time for learning on land. We can handle groups of up to 100 for canoeing day trips and groups of 100 or more for land-based learning activities that include a short canoe trip.

Students will come away from our outdoor activities with lessons they will long remember. They can explore their local waterways by canoeing. They can play a fur trading game to learn about how early settlers affected the region. They can fish or go seine netting to get a lesson on the health of their local waterway. They can go orienteering to learn navigation skills. They can go on a nature hike to learn to about native plants and animals.

Students always say that Canoemobile is their favorite field trip of the year. Lessons engage youth to improve school performance, develop a stewardship ethic, and become aware of a pathway to pursue educational and career opportunities in the outdoors. We’ve worked with schools of all sizes to educate more than one hundred thousand students with this program. Sign up now to make outdoor learning work for your students!

gangsters in historical experiences

Historical Experiences, Inc.

In 1920, Minnesotans, along with the rest of the country, were plunged into what many called “The Great Experiment.” PROHIBITION. The manufacture, sale and transportation of alcohol was outlawed by the Volstead Act. Parents became bootleggers, kids smuggled illegal alcohol, and outlaws became celebrities. When Congress passed the Eighteenth Amendment, supporters believed it would create a better, stronger nation. Instead it began an era of lawlessness, when famous gangsters like Al Capone rose to fame. After an agreement between bootlegging gangsters and the police, St. Paul became a “gangster haven.” As gangsters grabbed the headlines, everyday Minnesotans quietly set up their own stills and speakeasies, producing the, what many considered, the best corn liquor in the nation. Many Minnesotans were busted and went to jail, some at Leavenworth Penitentiary in Kansas. Why take the risk? When WWI ended many farmers found themselves in danger of losing their farms. Producing moonshine for sale was one way to avoid foreclosure. Desperate situations call for desperate acts. Meet the drys, wets, gangsters, flappers, lawmen and suffragists of America’s most colorful, complex constitutional hiccup in Minnesota’s Wild and Woolly Prohibition Days.
