Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge @ Webster Groves Presbyterian Church
Apr 26 @ 7:00 pm

Guest Speakers: Richard Spener and Toni Armstrong

Experience Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on a canoe adventure with Richard Spener and Toni Armstrong. The raw beauty and remote wilderness of the place have drawn them back to visit six times over the past 26 years. On their journeys, they encounter 180,000 caribou, grizzly bears, musk oxen, Arctic foxes, wolves, dall sheep, red-throated loons, snowy owls, long-tailed jaegars, and other species. The indigenous people, the Gwich’in, call it “The Place Where Life Begins.” The Refuge continues to be a battleground over wildlife and the rights of indigenous people versus oil and gas development.

Richard Spener and Toni Armstrong hold leadership positions in local and national environmental organizations. Richard’s images have been published by the National Park Service, Nature Conservancy, Missouri Prairie Foundation and Alaska Wilderness League. Their photo exhibit on Missouri’s wilderness areas traveled across the state for a year in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.

Admission Is Free!
