This week’s Fireside Lecture at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center will feature photographer Amy Gulick, who will present images and stories about the Tongass National Forest from her book “Salmon in the Trees.” THe presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. and at 8 p.m. Friday, March 9.
“Salmon in the Trees,” published in 2010, is a combination of Gulick’s photographs of Southeast Alaska and essays written by area scientists, authors and others, including Juneau residents Rosita Worl, Richard Carstensen, Becky Janes and Sissi Babich, as well as Ketchkan artist Ray Troll and Sitka author John Straley. The book highlights the interconnectedness between the trees that grow in the forest and the salmon that live in the streams.
Guilck, who lives in North Bend, Wash., is an award-winning photojournalist and a fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers. “Salmon in the Trees” was the winner of the 2010 Independent Publisher Book Award.
Copies of the book will be for sale at the event.
