For SLU outdoor team, a decade-long journey north

Listen to this story
For ten years, St. Lawrence University has been sending students north into the James Bay region of Quebec and Ontario. The James Bay Canoe Expedition is led by Phil Royce. He's a veteran whitewater guide and heads the school's outdoor program. This year, Royce led a team of eight paddlers down the Wakwayowkastic River. His audio diary from the trip was produced by Brian Mann. We also heard from students Jon Angus and Barrett Miles, who graduated from SLU this year. In ten years of the James Bay Canoe Expedition, there has never been a serious injury.
