We invite you to join us at one of our upcoming events, and THANK YOU for supporting SEAL Trust!

Join two Juneau women who have transited the Northwest Passage. See images of their journeys and hear about changes occurring in the Arctic.

In 1995, as a naturalist and zodiac driver, Theresa Svancara spent 35 days working on a 240′ ice strengthened ecotour vessel transiting the passage twice (from east to west and back). The ship encountered a great deal of sea ice and required the services of a Canadian ice breaker.

In 2016, Linda Nicklin was a lecturer on board the 820′ Crystal Serenity. The ship was escorted by the icebreaker Earnest Shackleton, but had very little contact with ice.

These two journeys, 21 years apart, give perspective on changes and constants in Arctic travel, conditions, and human impacts in this beautiful region of the world. For more detailed information, please go to this linkWe hope you’ll join us!

WHEN: March 25th at 7:00pm

WHERE: Egan Lecture Hall, UAS campus

ADMISSION: Suggested donation to benefit SEAL Trust: $20

Seating is limited! Please plan to come early!

He’ll be illustrating the history of the Peterson sisters, their role as miners and entrepreneurs at the turn of the century, and the legacy that they left for the community of Juneau. See the transformation of the original homestead into the Jensen-Olson Arboretum that occupies the site today.
