The University of Alaska Southeast Sitka Campus and Sitka Sound Science Center will host a talk about the “Nature of Southeast Alaska” at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 13, at Room 229 of the UAS Sitka Campus as part of their Natural History Seminar series.
The presentation will discuss the recently updated third edition of the 1992 book by Richard Carstensen, Bob Armstrong, and Rita M. O’Clair, “The Nature of Southeast Alaska: A Guide to Plants, Animals, and Habitats.”
According to the Sitka Sound Science Center website:
More than 20 years have passed since the book was first published — years that have seen huge advances, not only in understanding of Northwest Coast natural history, but also in the world of publishing. They have added more than 100 new drawings, maps and photos, 52 new sidebars, and made sweeping updates and elaborations to chapter narratives. Richard and Bob will show slides and discuss what was most interesting and exciting to them in putting together this new edition.
Funding for the seminar series is provided by a grant to the Sitka Sound Science Center by the Sitka Permanent Charitable Trust and by support from the University of Alaska Southeast Sitka Campus.
