Called “America’s Serengeti” for its tremendous biological productivity, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most intact and untouched ecosystems in America. It is home to over 160 species of birds, nearly all long-distance migrants that nest during the long days of the Arctic summer then migrate as far away as South America and the South Pacific.
Dan Streiffert, a retired power systems engineer, now photographs wildlife and volunteers for both Sierra Club and the Audubon Society. He will show the exceptional photos he took during a 12-day adventure in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, rafting down the scenic Marsh Fork through the rugged Brooks Range to its confluence with the Canning River.
