In the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, there are no roads, no trails, no landing strips and no people living there. Join us for a close-up tour of this region when speaker Ian Foote tells us about his experience with a team of five young men who ventured on foot hundreds of miles into the Arctic Brook Mountain Range. For 50 days, they had no contact with the outside world, with only a satellite phone in case of an emergency rescue. Hauling 90-pound backpacks, they encountered 24-hour daylight, blizzards and hypothermia. Ian will share how this expedition led him toward a future career in forestry and environmental science as he heads to college this fall.
