This is an online event · Third Place Books Lake Forest Park
Third Place Books welcomes former National Park Service ranger Michael Fitz for a presentation of his new book, The Bears of Brooks Falls: Wildlife and Survival on Alaska's Brooks River. He will be joined in conversation by Stacey Schmeidel. On the Alaska Peninsula, where exceptional landscapes are commonplace, a small river attracts attention far beyond its scale. Each year, from summer to early fall, brown bears and salmon gather at Brooks River to create one of North America’s greatest wildlife spectacles. As the salmon leap from the cascade, dozens of bears are there to catch them (with as many as forty-three bears sighted in a single day), and thousands of people come to watch in person or on the National Park Service’s popular Brooks Falls Bearcam.
