We will discuss our recent trip into the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on the Hulahula River. We will discuss the history of the Refuge and the need to protect the Coastal Plain from future oil and gas drilling. Also, we will talk about the Indigenous Inupiat and Gwich'in Peoples who live in and around the Refuge and have been stewards of the land since time immemorial.
