Juneau- Behind the Scenes: A Film Director's Take on "The Salmon Forest"

This fireside lecture will be held at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center at 6:30 and repeating at 8pm. Join wildlife documentary filmmaker BEN HAMILTON as he ventures through the Tongass National Forest to explore and capture the incredible lives of salmon. From weaving cable cams through an old growth forest and snorkeling in raging streams, to bear and orca encounters, he'll share the biggest challenges he faced in production, material that never made the final cut, and takeaways about salmon and life in Alaska. A special showing of the documentary will be held at 5:15. Fireside Lectures are free of charge, and thanks to our partners at Discovery Southeast, cookies and tea are served in the lobby. For more information, call 907-789-0097.
