Epic Adventure in the Alaskan Arctic

The OYBC Conference in Columbus, Ohio had amazing young speakers this year! We thought they were so good – we would write about each one of them separately!

Epic Adventure in the Alaskan Arctic
Speaker: Lucas

OYBC conference 196

Lucas is a young conservationist who recently volunteered with the Arctic Shorebird Network in Alaska. He is an enthusiastic birder with a heart of gold.

Lucas’ presentation was on his summer time in a remote four-person camp in Cape Kruzenstern National Monument, Alaska. While there, he monitored nesting shorebirds and was on the lookout to see a grizzly bear. His energetic speaking style kept the crowd engaged, complete with bird sounds and tales of being dive bombed. And he did finally see a grizzly bear on his last day there.
