"A Journey through Alaska: Birds, Wildlife, and Scenery"
with Cameron Cox

A journey through the expansive and beautiful 49th state and the birds and wildlife that make the most unforgettable place in the United States. Touching on frozen tundra of Barrow, the stunted taiga forest of Nome, the seabird cliffs of St Paul, the towering mountains of Denali, and the stunning glaciers of Kenai, this slide presentation will give you a tantalizing taste of Alaska!

Cameron Cox has been an avid birder for over twenty years as and is Coauthor of Peterson's Reference Guide to Seawatching: Eastern Waterfowl in Flight. He has a passion for learning more about bird identification and behavior and an equal passion for sharing his knowledge with others. He currently works as a leader for Tropical Birding leading birding and photography tours throughout the US and the world.
