I successfully completed the Paddle On expedition on November 4th. I still have about a month's worth of blog posts that are partially written and need to be completed and posted. I will do this, and have not forgotten! I have been very busy since I returned, starting work on a memoir and making contacts and scheduling myself for upcoming speaking engagements (not to mention hustling for part time work in the interim, and of course the holidays). Here are my current confirmed speaking engagements, and there are more pending. If you or your organization would like me to come speak about this expedition, citizen science, water quality or marine/coastal/riverine conservation, please message me: alyssum(dot)pohl(at)gmail(dot)com
