We have some amazing domestic tours planned for the next nine months. The Freedom Ride with Dr. Margaret Rozga and Jim O’Leary will retrace stops on the 1964 Freedom Ride and visits sites from Freedom Summer. Both leaders are uniquely qualified to lead this tour, which is offered for college credit.
Barbara Eash will once again lead a group of pickers and collectors to Amish country, Shipshewana. (Side Note: Last year’s trip was perhaps my FAVORITE trip to date; she is amazingly generous with her knowledge).
Mark Miner led an appreciative group to Glacier National Park in October, 2013 and will reprise his role as tour-leader and naturalist extraordinaire on a four-day, fall colors tour to the Upper Peninsula. Keep your eyes on our website to find more trips for the upcoming year!
