An amazing journey to Alaska, the wildest of wild America, land of the midnight sun with Zoo Director Emeritus David Jones and his wife Janet. Scheduled to align with autumnal changes in Denali and the grizzly bears' pre-winter gorging on migrating salmon.
The trip explores the beautiful Kenai Peninsula in search of terrestrial and marine wildlife; flies to a remote part of Denali National Park ,a hundred miles from the crowded main entrance to watch grizzlies hunting and waiting for leaping salmon. The journey will highlight both the interior and the coastline of this remarkable part of our country.
Expect to see Brown (Grizzly) and Black Bears, Caribou, Moose and—with luck—wolves on land and whales, porpoises, otters and sea lions in the water. These and an array of birds and wild flowers specifically adapted to flourish in the short northern summer.
Only a few openings remain in the August 27 through September 5th trip.
