Does a wilderness canoe trip make you more creative?

5/8/15 – Tune in to WTIP-FM tonight at 5:20 pm to hear psychology professor Frank Ferraro talk about his research that suggests that people experience a significant boost in creativity during and immediately after a wilderness canoe trip.
Frank is a longtime Sawbill customer and co-leader of a college class from Nebraskan Wesleyan University called “The Necessity of Wilderness” that outfits through Sawbill Canoe Outfitters.
I believe that almost everyone who travels for more than a few days in a wilderness setting feels a change in their thinking and attitude, but it’s always nice to have data to back up your intuition.
