The Aleutian Islands

Tuesday, Feb 7 1:00 – 3:00 PM Fee: $5

The Aleutian Islands is a 1200-mile-long chain of active volcanic islands that run from the Alaskan peninsula to Russia. They separate the Bering Sea from the Pacific Ocean. These remote islands were first inhabited some 6000-8000 years ago by the Unangan people. Later, Russians discovered its rich fur resources. Home to enormous seabird colonies, it houses the largest wildlife refuge in the U.S. Today its people practice subsistence living, as well as exploit its marine resources. This talk will cover some geography and natural history, as well as introduce you to its people, past and present. Instructor: Dave Hobbins, St John Valley Senior College.
