Alaska Wilderness League in Nashua

We're excited to hear that the Alaska Wilderness League and the NH Sierra Club are hosting a talk in Nashua on safeguarding the last wild places in the U.S.

If you're in the area, come see and hear about Alaska's great wilderness areas, the threats they face and what you can do to help.

New Hampshire resident Richard Kahn's short film, "Native Voices" will also be showing at the event. The film include footage shot on a trip to Alaska last summer that was sponsored by the Alaska Wilderness League. Richard, an Emmy award-winning filmmaker,is currently preparing to return on his own for another summer in Alaska's western wilderness. Here's one of Richard's other films that was entered into the 2020 Vision Film Fest (looking back on the last 20 years since the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska).

The talk will be at 7 pm on Tuesday, June 2 at the Nashua Public Library. As a side note, be sure to check out events at your local library. Every week, the Nashua library has events ranging from Portuguese cooking classes, talks on local trout fishing spots, free movies, concerts, tie dye classes, etc. It's a great local (and free) resource!
