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.
Chris and Ken Day, bear-viewing guides from Homer, Alaska, are excited to share their stunning photographs and thrilling tales of adventure from 20 years of walking peacefully among the famous brown bears of Katmai National Park and Preserve. This January, while the Katmai bears are deep in slumber, Chris and Ken will trace their summer tracks along crystal clear streams rushing with wild salmon to a special place where only respect separates us from the bears. The evening will feature live music, too!
The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
Time: 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
