Men's Journal - March 2009 Issue
Well, the March issue of Men's Journal has arrived, and is a must grab for anyone passionate about Alaska's wilderness and protecting it from the Pebble Mine Project. Oh, and if you want to know more about whether or not Obama's got game, then this is your issue!
Late last summer, Dan led a group down the Chilikadrotna River on a 7 day true wilderness adventure. But this group's mission was a little different. With a feature article on the brain, Daniel Duane, an adventure writer from Men's Journal and Corey Rich, one of the countries most accomplished adventure photographers, spearheaded a trip to Lake Clark National Park and the nearby site of the Pebble Mine Project. Joining Duane and Rich were Fish Biologist Carol Ann Woody, chief biometrician for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Joel Reynolds, and Sierra Club activist Lance Holter. Dan, who is a vocal opponent to the Pebble Mine, was in good company.
I'll let you read the article for the details, but needless to say it firmly asserts the need to protect wilderness, especially the headwaters of the world's largest run of sockeye salmon. We hope that this article brings focus to another ongoing battle of resources in Alaska.
