A Trip to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

When driving along Turnagain Arm, you might miss the modest sign for the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center near Portage Creek.

Getting Ready for Paddling Season

Getting Ready for Paddling Season

The ice will soon go out soon on our lakes and rivers. The sea otters are ready to pose for our pictures. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’re getting ready for paddling season. Host Charles Wohlforth and guests will be talking about canoeing, kayaking, rafting, rivers, lakes and the ocean — gear, safety, planning and packing. We’ll be dreaming about the trips we would love to take, and talking to folks who have done them.

The Potential of Trails in Alaska

With the snow melting back and the ground thawing out, Alaska’s trail builders will soon be back at work making the country more accessible. They’ll be out there with tools and crews, shaping paths for feet, paws and wheels. If you never heard of single tracks and pump tracks and especially if you have, you’ll learn what’s new in trails on the next Talk of Alaska.

We Are The Ionians

Ionia is a remote, and sometimes misunderstood intentional community located outside Kasilof, Alaska. The community was originally formed nearly 30 years ago by four families, each seeking a simpler, quieter life.

The group, now numbering around 30 full-time residents, continues to pursue their goals in the relative solitude of their 160 acre communal property.

Corporate Personhood

Corporate Personhood

The issue of corporate personhood has been brought up repeatedly by callers to the show, and the chance to talk about it now arises with the creation of an organization that is asking political candidates to take a pledge to oppose it. The legal implications are of course obvious with the current Hobby Lobby case and the Citizens United and Boy Scouts of America rulings that preceded it.
