Featured Speaker: Debbie S. Miller, award-winning Alaskan author and educator

Prince William Sound has the highest concentration of tidewater glaciers in America, with a coastal wilderness like no other. Join Alaska author Debbie S. Miller on an exploration of this magnificent and dramatic environment shared by bears and salmon, sea otters and humpback whales, puffins and bald eagles. Debbie spent five years paddling and hiking along numerous fjords and collaborated with Alaska photographer Hugh Rose to create a book about this vulnerable, extraordinary place:  A Wild Promise:  Prince William Sound. Learn how you can help protect one of Alaska’s beautiful wild places.
