The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness gets undivided attention at its namesake expo June 17-18 at the Seagull Lake public landing on the Gunflint Trail in northern Minnesota. In its third year, the expo comes at the BWCA from a variety of perspectives. There are presenters, such as Year in the Wilderness adventurers Dave and Amy Freeman. There will be opportunities to try different canoes. And there will be outfitters and guides ready to dispense knowledge on traveling in the wilderness, whether you’re a hard-core veteran or a first-timer.
