Explorers and educators Dave and Amy Freeman have been living in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness since September 2015 to raise awareness about proposed sulfide-ore copper mining just outside the Wilderness.

Dave and Amy have had visitors throughout their time in the Wilderness as resupply volunteers bring food and other essentials, but in March they received a unique treat: live music and poetry from Twin Cities musician Ben Weaver. Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current went along to document the extra-special delivery.
