Dr. Berger has extensive wilderness camping experience. He has organized and led ecological tours to Alaska, The Yukon, British Columbia, Eastern Canada, and Africa. He produced an award-winning documentary film, "Yukon Journal", about people living in remote areas of Canada's Yukon Territory.

He has served on the board of directors of the International Sled Dog Veterinary Medical Association. Charlie has volunteered for over 30 mid and long-distance sleddog races including many Iditarods and Yukon quests.

"Dr. Berger has all the qualities of a great teacher: preparation, organization, information, wit, wisdom, and a delightful sense of humour. He listened well to all voices in the class, keeping a passel of diverse people entertained and informed from start to finish. I wish all courses were as engaging, and all teachers as splendid."
