Alaskan Adventures: Exploring the Last Frontier

Date: Fri. 26 Jan, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour

Lois Maltais had a childhood dream of hiking the wilderness areas of Alaska and fishing in its remote rivers. In the 90s, she finally fulfilled that dream. Then in 2016 and 2017, she returned to Alaska’s backwoods crisscrossing the state . Now, join her at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, Jan. 26 at 7 p.m. as she shows pictures and talks about her adventures exploring the “last frontier.” Maltais traveled across the state by car, train, helicopter, float plane, bike and foot, from Anchorage to Seward, from Fairbanks to Denali National Park, and from Anchorage to Lake Clark National Park. During that time, she fished the Kenai River for silver salmon, Prince William Sound for halibut, and Crescent Lake in Lake Clark National Park for sockeye salmon and Dolly Varden trout. Also, while in Denali National Park she explored the backcountry, and hiked and biked the trails within the Park. For more information on the talk contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or kchagnon@jesuplibrary.org.
