Join Peninsula Open Space Trust for a special free online screening of Love is the Way, the 2020 film documentary of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, highlighting the generations of stewardship by Gwich’in and Iñupiaq people.
The event is free but registration is required. Guests who register for the event will receive a viewing link and password to access the film anytime between December 7 and December 14.
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a landscape of connections. This place is the heart of generations of protection, lifelong friendships, and iconic wildlife migrations. Love is the Way tells the stories of these connections, and the power of the continuing efforts to keep oil companies out of the Refuge’s sacred coastal plain.
