February 22, 2020 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15
Join photographer and author Andy Selters, and arctic guide and advocate Brennan Lagasse for an evening portrayal of this northeast corner of Alaska making headlines for both grandeur and proposed oil development.
Andy will share his pictures and tales from a north-south traverse through the Brooks Range, and Brennan will present his perspectives from many visits as a leader of expeditions and youth groups, including work with the native peoples and an overview of the threats from oil development and climate change.
