Outdoor Adventures

Are you outdoorsy? We asked Project Success staff what they like to do when they get outside in the winter and here is what some of them had to say…

Our Project Success staff love to get outdoors, no matter the weather or time of year. Watch all of our “Getting Outdoors” videos, filmed through the seasons!

PS Staff Gets Outdoors Playlist

Thursday, March 11 from 7pm-8:30pm
Project Success invites you to join Helen Ahern as she presents video and photos from her expeditions to Antarctica. Helen will cover topics such as travel to Antarctica, the land, ice and animals of the area, the importance of the ecosystem and her journey towards guiding global adventures as a career choice!

Wednesday, March 24, 7:00-8:00pm
Can you imagine living an entire year in the wild where “home” is surrounded by breathtaking forest, lakes and streams? Where your “neighbors” include loons, moose, wolves, fox, beaver, otters and so many more of nature’s creatures? Join wilderness explorers, Amy & Dave Freeman, as they share stories and photos from their exciting journey!

Wednesdays, February 3 – March 31
Join Project Success as we share different perspectives and appreciation for the outdoors and the land we inhabit. We will explore the beauty of nature in our own backyards and then take you on a virtual journey to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, covering skills such as wildlife observation, map reading, trip planning, survival tips and more!

Tuesdays, February 2 – March 30, 4:30-6:00pm
This club is FREE and available to all Franklin students. We meet online once a week after school, but we will give students fun challenges for them to explore the outdoors on their own or with their families throughout the week. Join Project Success as we share different perspectives and appreciation for the outdoors and the land we inhabit.

PS Winter Nature Bingo is a way to get outside and appreciate winter, learn a bit about our local parks, winter activities and discover new fun facts about nature and the creatures who inhabit it!

Project Success has been bringing middle school students to the BWCA every year since 1998 and we have only had to cancel the trip once – this past summer, due to COVID. Many of you are already making summer plans and are wondering if we will be offering BWCA trips in the summer of 2021. Please keep your eye out on this web page for any updated information regarding the possibility of BWCA Adventures in 2021.

These are links suggested by Project Success and/or suggested by our fantastic partners. Enjoy virtual exploration as well as a few ideas to maximize your joy in the outdoors!
