By Staff | Apr 29, 2011

A reception and film screening of “Alaska: America’s Wildest Refuge” will be held Thursday, May 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the Byrd Auditorium at the National Conservation Training Center. The Friends of the NCTC are hosting this event for members and their guests.

Viewers will enjoy the film’s sweeping views of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, its wildlife and interviews with those that know it best. Meet Alaskan native residents that live near the refuge and rely on it to maintain their ancient subsistence way of life and some of the refuge’s wildest residents, including musk ox, caribou and bears and the scientists studying them. “America’s Wildest Refuge” is an ecological and historical portrait of this corner of Alaska.

The film screening will begin at 7:15 p.m. To become a member and attend the event, visit www.friendsofnctc.org. Memberships are available from $5 per year.
