Audubon Center Logo

The next Dinner at the Lake event for the Audubon Center will be held on Saturday, April 14th at 6:00 PM.

2 Women. 4,000 Miles. A Source-to-Sea Expedition exploring the Source of Confidence on the 4th Longest River System in the World.

During the summer and fall of 2016 Lisa Pugh and Alyce Kuenzli became the only all female expedition to traverse this river system (Jefferson-Missouri-Mississippi). A once in a lifetime expedition. They used their expedition to inspire and teach girls and women to discover their own source’s of confidence, using Adventure Learning.

They documented their experiences on the expedition and uploaded video, photographs, and blog posts, in real time. The expedition served as a platform for exploring what confidence is and how to build it. Alyce and Lisa used the Wilderness Classroom to showcase their successes, failures, triumphs, and challenges on the rivers and the tools they use to persevere. Along with a curriculum designed to build skills in communication, problem-solving, decision making, and, of course, self-confidence. Together, Lisa and Alyce have over twenty years of experience facilitating this process and used the Source of Confidence Expedition to teach these confidence-building ideas to a larger audience of girls and women.
