Alaska National Parks Discovery Series: Gates of The Arctic In HD: Capturing The Images & Sounds Of Alaska's Wildest Park
The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) is proud to host the second 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.
Cinematographer Daniel Zatz and sound recording naturalist Richard Nelson set out to film the natural treasures and human traditions of the Brooks Range. Using the newest, state-of-the-art high definition equipment, they captured stories as old as the mountains.
The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
