Eden Ashebir’s Bio

My name is Eden Ashebir and I am from Indianapolis, Indiana. I am currently attending Duke University and will be a junior in the upcoming fall. I am majoring in Sociology, minoring in Visual Media Studies, and working on a Marketing & Management Studies certificate all in hopes of someday going into some aspect of marketing. I’m involved in various organizations at Duke including ΑΦΩ (Alpha Phi Omega), a national service fraternity. I’ve always enjoyed my casual hikes, bike rides, canoeing trips, etc. throughout different parks, but until recently, I hadn’t discovered my love for the more adventurous side of the outdoors. Currently, my favorite outdoor activity is rock climbing which I was fortunate enough to do at Pilot Mountain in North Carolina last April!

By the end of my internship with DNK Presents, I hope that I will have successfully helped in bringing this great company some more of the recognition it deserves. I also hope to have learned much more about what it takes to get a new business going.

I look forward to my time working with Danielle & Kate as well as to seeing you all out on some adventures!

Wilderness Survival Article Info.

Hello Adventurers!

We came across this article (link below) which has some great tips on learning about plants and animals in the backcountry. As you go out for your summer adventure in the wilderness make sure you are fully prepared. If you can’t make one of our beginner adventures the guide from Flora and Fauna gives you some great survival tips for the backcountry. As always do not attempt to consume any plant or berry that is in question of edibleness. There are many plants and berries that are not edible in the wilderness and it is always best to have a trained professional that is experienced on wilderness survival who is with you to determine whether something is edible or not.

Click here below to read the full article.

Beginner Backpack Weekend Adventure!

Last weekend we had the amazing opportunity to take out a great group of people to Morgan Monroe State Forest for our first adventure of the year. This was our beginner backpack trip where we shared our knowledge and helpful tips to get them out in the backcountry on their own. We went over topo maps, trail blazes, picked an amazing site along the Tecumseh Trail where we set up camp, filtered water from the neighboring stream, made fire, cooked, hung our food and even dug cat holes. We were fortunate enough to see tons of beautiful wild flowers such as shooting stars, jack in the pulpit, trout lilly and dutchman’s breeches. We had a clear night to sit by the fire under the pines and gaze at the stars and Jupiter shining bright. We were also visited by the local Great Horned owls and coyotes. They put on a wonderful performance of howling and hooting.

If you are ready to take your next adventure with your group, family, by yourself or with your company please let us know what excursion you would be interested in.

See what a member of our group spoke about our adventure below.

“Our family of 4 are seasoned campers but novice backpackers. We all agreed that our time with Danielle and Kate was educational but more importantly, FUN! No pressure, our pace and our guides were like hanging out with old friends. We’ll definitely recommend Danielle and Kate to anyone interested in outdoor adventure or to a family or couple who just want some together time outdoors. We had a great backpacking weekend!!” Heidi – Indianapolis, IN
