The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) is proud to host the third season in an exciting new lecture series to introduce residents to Alaska's 15 national parks, monuments, and preserves, which encompass two-thirds the total acreage of America's National Park System. A diverse array of Alaskan speakers will share personal stories inspired by Alaska’s national parks. From Katmai's world-renowned brown bears to Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve, the series will highlight recreational opportunities, significant historical and cultural sites, and the role parks play as a driving force for Alaska's economy.
Paul Hanis of Kennicott Wilderness Guides experienced the wild and sublime during a 160-mile solo trek In the heart of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. Paul will reflect on the unique battles a solo adventurer often has with oneself as he shares photos and stories from his backcountry challenge.
