FEBRUARY 13TH: “STORIES FROM THE ARCTIC BY ARCTIC YOUTH AMBASSADORS”

Arctic Youth Ambassadors are young leaders from across Alaska who have traveled around Alaska, the lower 48 and the world telling their real-life stories of a rapidly changing arctic in Alaska. Join a couple of Ambassadors as they reflect on growing up in rural Alaska and changes they are seeing in wildlife, weather and the land. They will share their inspiration and ideas on tackling this challenge to help ensure a bright future for Alaska’s wildlife and people.
