Salmon and Alaska

Amy Gulick, Photographer/Author

Salmon are an iconic symbol of Alaska: plentiful and wild. On this week’s Outdoor Explorer we’ll being talking with Amy Gulick about her new book “The Salmon Way.” Amy spent time observing and living with commercial and sport salmon fishermen and women, and Alaska Natives. During this show she shares the lessons salmon, and those who rely on salmon, taught her. We also explore some of the challenges salmon face, both in their life-time and in the future.

HOST: Paul Twardock

GUESTS:

  • Amy Gulick, an acclaimed nature photographer and writer. Her work has been featured in Outdoor Photographer, Audubon, Sierra, and other publications.

Eric Bork, Alaska Public Media
Eric Bork, or you can just call him “Bork” because everybody else does, was the Audio Media Content Producer for KSKA-FM. He now produces and edits episodes of Outdoor Explorer, the Alaska focused outdoors program. He also maintains the web posts for that show. You may have heard him filling in for Morning Edition or All Things Considered and can still find him operating the sound board for any of the live broadcast programs. After escaping the Detroit area when he was 18, Bork made it up to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where he earned a degree in Communications/Radio Broadcasting from Northern Michigan University. He spent time managing the college radio station, working for the local NPR affiliate and then in top 40 radio in Michigan before coming to Alaska to work his first few summers. After then moving to Chicago, it only took five years to convince him to move back to Alaska in 2010. When not involved in great radio programming he’s probably riding a bicycle, thinking about riding bicycles, dreaming about bikes, reading a book or planning the next place he’ll travel to. Only two continents left to conquer!
