This week we welcome Emily Stone and her presentation entitled “Adventures in Alaska.”
Why are wildflowers on the tundra so diverse? How many snowshoe hares can you catch in three days? What else will you find when looking for caribou? Last summer, Emily visited and volunteered with scientists all around Alaska during a four-month sabbatical. Come learn about her road trip and the flora and fauna of that amazing place.
Emily M. Stone grew up in Iowa and first came to the Boundary Waters at age 16. She earned a degree in outdoor education from Northland College and a Field Naturalist Masters from the University of Vermont. As the Naturalist/Education Director at the Cable Natural History Museum in Cable, Wisconsin, Emily writes a weekly “Natural Connections” column published in more than a dozen local and regional newspapers. Her second book: Natural Connections—Dreaming of an Elfin Skimmer, is due out in March 2019.
