Health, Food & Fitness: Anchorage Museum

Posted in Event Calendar · Comments Off on Health, Food & Fitness: Anchorage Museum 
  • 1pm: Eeva Latosuo, Alaska Pacific University faculty, Outdoor Studies Program and Alaska Avalanche School instructor – Snow and Safety in the Backcountry
  • 2pm: Dr. David Newirth, Alaska Natural Health Solutions – Preventing SAD
  • 2:30pm: Dr. James D. O’Malley – winter health and safety
  • 3pm: Eating Alaska, a film by Ellen Frankenstein, 56 minutes. A documentary about a vegetarian who moves to Alaska, marries a fisherman and hunter and begins to wonder what the “right” thing to eat is on the “last frontier.” What ensues are humorous and enlightening adventures in eating as the filmmaker heads to the woods and mountains with women hunters, communes with the Alaska vegetarian society, talks moose meat with a group of Alaska Native kids in a public schools in the Arctic and more, all in search of a meal that makes sense politically, socially, spiritually and tastefully. This wry look at what’s on your plate explores ideas about eating healthy sustainable food from one’s own backyard, either urban or wild, versus industrially produced food shipped thousands of miles. Collaboration with independent filmmaker and KTOO-TV.
  • 4pm: Dr. Durocher, USGS – Rockhounding in Alaska

Sponsored, in part, by BP Exploration.

Presentation: Northern Ecology

Posted in Event Calendar · Comments Off on Presentation: Northern Ecology 

Presentation on the polar bears of the Arctic, by USGS researcher Steven C. Amstrup.

Steven C. Amstrup is a Research Wildlife Biologist with the Unites States Geological Survey at the Alaska Science Center, Anchorage AK. He holds a B.S. in Forestry from the University of Washington (1972), a M.S. in Wildlife Management from the University of Idaho (1975), and a Ph.D. in Wildlife Management from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (1995). He has been conducting research on all aspects of polar bear ecology in the Beaufort Sea for 24 years. His interests include distribution and movement patterns as well as population dynamics of wildlife, and how information on those topics can be used to assure wise stewardship. He is particularly interested in how science can help to reconcile the ever enlarging human footprint on our environment with the needs of other species for that same environment. Prior work experiences include studies of black bears in central Idaho, and pronghorns and grouse in Wyoming. On their honeymoon in New Zealand in 1999, Steven and his wife Virginia helped in a tagging study of little blue penguins. That experience gave Steve the honor of being one of the very few people ever to have been bitten by both polar bears and penguins.

Movie: Strait Through the Ice

Posted in Event Calendar · Comments Off on Movie: Strait Through the Ice 

Part of the Movies For Your Mind series, this film shows with a Chilly Willy Cartoon “Half Baked Alaska” 7 minutes (total running time 59m).

US documentary, 2008. 52 minutes. MPAA RATING: Not Rated.  Directed by Yves Billy

From the official website: Today the North Pole is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet. The Arctic ice cap is less than half the size it was 50 years ago. This radical climate change has thus begun to open the ice-packed Northwest Passage between Europe and Asia, and some scientists predict that the transoceanic maritime route will soon be permanently ice free during its ever-longer summers.  STRAIT THROUGH THE ICE examines the geopolitical ramifications of this development, including disputes between the five nations bordering the Arctic Ocean-the U.S., Canada, Denmark, Norway and Russia-over claims to territorial waters, the control of sea traffic, and the right to exploit the region’s untapped resources of oil and other natural resources. But if this multinational race to the Arctic is not legally regulated, the region’s fragile ecosystem could be devastated.
