Adventurer and environmental scientist John Wik visited EC to talk about his 3 month trip circumnavigating the Delmarva Peninsula in his row boat. His trip began in New Castle, Delaware on May 15, 2007, stopping occasionally to visit communities and make presentations about his trip. His stop at EC came approximately 1 month into his journey.
He talked about his mission to excite children and young people about getting out and exploring the natural world around them. His small boat is equipped with satellite cameras which he uses to record a video journal highlighting the ecology, geology, and history of the region.
Attendees of his presentation got to hear first hand about his adventures and got to see his boat up close.
