“There’s no place like Nome.”
Explore America’s frontier in the vast state of Alaska! The focus of this tour will be birding and wildlife watching, with some geology and ecology in the mix. We’ll explore several major ecosystems across Alaska, including rugged coastlines, boreal forests, subalpine, and tundra. Many bird species breed and nest in the habitats we’ll visit. Birds we’ll look for include Horned Puffin, Willow Ptarmigan, Gray-cheeked Thrush, and Bluethroat. Mammals we hope to see are Moose, Grizzly Bear, Dall Sheep, Caribou, Sea Otter, and Musk Ox. We start in Anchorage and then head to the Kenai Peninsula to explore Kenai Fjords National Park. We then head to Denali National Park. On the way, we’ll explore a portion of the amazing Denali Highway. Returning to Anchorage, we’ll fly to Nome on Alaska’s remote west coast. In this region, we’ll venture out on back roads to explore the subarctic tundra ecosystem.
Ivan Phillipsen Ph.D., co-owner of Wild Latitudes will co-lead this trip.
