Salmon in the Trees: Life in Alaska's Tongass Rain Forest
Wednesday, April 7th, 2010
Award-winner photographer and author Amy Gulick takes you on the journey she's made over the last two years, documenting "the grizzly bears, wolves, bald eagles, humpback whales, and wild salmon of the Tongass National Forest." A book signing will immediately follow the talk.
"Salmon in the Trees tells the story of the Tongass, a rare rain forest spread among thousands of islands in the panhandle of Alaska. It's a place where everything grows everything. Young saplings grow on top of fallen, centuries-old trees. Bears, eagles, and Native cultures grow strong on wild salmon. Trees grow salmon, and salmon grow trees."
