America's Wildest Refuge
About the size of S. Carolina, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is home to caribou herds, polar bears, grizzly bears, muskox, doll sheep, wolves, wolverines, snow geese, peregrine falcons and other migratory birds. Discover this isolated and breathtaking preserve at a special screening of "America's Wildest Refuge" on Tuesday, November 29, at Washington College.
You are invited for cake and refreshments at 6:30 PM in the McLain Atrium, located in the Toll Science Building on Campus Avenue in Chestertown. The film begins at 7:00 PM in Litrenta Lecture Hall. It has a running time of 50 minutes. You may watch the trailer on youtube.com. Colby Hawkinson, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service specialist at Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge, will be on hand to answer questions and explore connections between the Eastern Neck and Arctic refuges. Events are sponsored by Washington College's Center for Environment & Society, the Friends of Eastern Neck Inc., and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
