Mr. Fletcher is very excited to welcome back award winning author and well known adventurer Adam Shoalts to Port Colborne High School on Nov. 8th.
Mr. Shoalts will talk to students about his 4 month, solo expedition into the unknown Hudson Bay lowlands. He crossed just crossed 4,000 kilometres of remote, Arctic mainland Canada with no one to keep him company but the wolves and bears bold enough to investigate him and his canoe.
Adam is a professional explorer and adventurer whose trail-blazing expeditions into the last unexplored places on the planet have been covered by the BBC, CNN, CTV News, CBC, The Guardian, and other media around the world.
His exploring career has included discovering waterfalls, mapping rivers, leading expeditions sponsored by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and Mountain Equipment Co-op, numerous archaeological digs, and tracking down elusive flora and fauna.
Trained as a cartographer, archaeologist, and historian, and having grown up in rural Canada perfecting his skills in bushcraft, Shoalts has built birchbark canoes and worked as a survival instructor.
The presentation begins at 10 AM in the auditorium.
