Travel alongside author Debbie Miller and photographer Hugh Rose as they hike and kayak from Columbia Glacier to College Fiord, exploring the Nellie Juan–College Fjord Wilderness Study Area, a region set aside for study in 1980, to be followed—it was hoped—by permanent protection from Congress. After almost four decades of being in limbo as a designated wilderness study area, the fate of this spectacular, wild place is now in our hands. Its protection is a gift we can offer generations to come—a promise of wilderness, beauty, and natural diversity that we can, indeed, keep. In this presentation, Debbie will share stories of the unique American heritage of Prince William Sound and the Chugach National Forest, which is under consideration for official wilderness designation.

The presentation will run about 30 minutes, followed by a 30 minute question and answer period. Register today, even if you can’t attend on November 20, and we’ll send you a recording of the event a day or two afterward. Plus, when you register you’ll automatically be entered to win one of three free copies of A Wild Promise!
