iTREC! kicked off it’s 10th year in Anchorage with fourteen teachers from three school districts: Anchorage, Mat-Su. Borough, and Bering Straits School Districts. In November, teachers visited Seward – Mile Zero of the Iditarod National Historic Trail – to continue building their curriculum and meet with Board Members Jonathan Sewall, Dan Seavey, and Lee Poleske. We are so excited for all the wonderful things these teachers will accomplish in their classrooms!
In November, the Alliance joined a number of other trail advocates at the Anchorage Museum’s First Friday kickoff to Wilderness Week. Alaska Trails, the Chugach National Forest, Alaska State Parks, and the Kenai Mountains – Turnagain Arm National Heritage Area hosted stations where visitors could learn about trail resources and stamp their “Passport” to win great prizes. Thank you to everyone that came out for the event!
Our Annual Meeting was held the first week of December – thank you to all of our members and partners that came out!
If you need a little winter-weather inspiration, check out this heartwarming video produced by Denali National Park on how the community of Minto is bringing dog mushing to the next generation of Dog Mushers.
We hope your start to 2020 – and the new decade! is off to a great start. Stay tuned as in our next post we will be sharing reflections on the past ten years!
