The Canning River – Arctic National Wildlife Refuge / Dan Streiffert
November 8 @ 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Come join us for an evening of enjoyment with Dan Streiffert, avid wildlife photographer and birder. He is also an active member of the Sierra Club and current chair of the Rainier Audubon Society Conservation Committee. Dan will narrate and show photographs from a trip down the Marsh Fork of the Canning River on the western boundary of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This highly diverse and productive coastal plain is one of the most pristine ecosystems in America. The refuge is home to 42 mammal species, including 120,000 caribou, 36 species of fish, and 160 bird species. Migratory birds from all six continents exploit the burst of productivity in the long days of the Arctic summer. (Photo courtesy: USFWS)
