Join us on a Gates of the Arctic tour in June 2024!

It’s our 50th anniversary year, and we want to provide an opportunity for supporters to engage with the places we protect.

One way we’re doing that is offering a one-week backcountry trip to Gates of the Arctic National Park, a landscape with expansive mountains and valleys, dense and delicate vegetation, and an array of animals like arctic bumblebees, jaegers, brown bears, and caribou. The trip will include engagement with a professional photographer who will talk about and give pro tips on taking photos of animals and landscapes, as well as conversations with Teresa Clemmer, Trustees’ legal director, who can talk about how to protect the region.

We hope you can join us. Here’s the skinny.
