Brandon writes: Harvard Extension Environmental Club 2010 Canoe Trip

Harvard Extension Environmental Club (HEEC) president, “The” Mike Mahoney, hosted a wicked-fun canoe trip and BBQ last weekend in Hanover Massachusetts.  After eight miles of canoeing through pristine wetlands, Mahoney grilled up a feast in the garden of Eden, A.K.A. Mahoney’s back yard, which is home to countless plants and over three hundred varieties of conifer. The conversation was lively thanks to the presence of great Harvard Extension characters like, “the-man-behind-the-camera” of distance courses, Steve Gilbert, and famed Environmental Management II instructor Zach Zevitas.

The canoe trip came with an unexpected bonus – a rope-swing ! Click the image below or click this link to watch the highlight video! Warren Anderson, our resident strong-man, led the way on the rope-swing, followed by yours truly; busting my face a few times before nailing a clean back-flip off the rope…seeing is believing;D

If you love getting wild in-the-wild then get in on the upcoming HEEC events; join the HEEC mailing list by contacting the lovely Kathryn Teissier:

Next time we meet, we will be outdoors, miles away from a computer!

      Thank you for your reply! With your sustainable farming background it sounds like you will feel right at home in the mix of environmentalists working and studying at Harvard.

      The classes are a great way to connect with new people who share your interests and could team up with you to make your business plans come together.
