A season of wild(life) Wednesdays

Thank you, Juneau. What great turnouts and terrific talks we had for our winter “Wildlife Wednesday” informal lecture series sponsored by the Alaska Wildlife Alliance-Southeast Chapter. We appreciate each and every one of you who attended the talks. Your questions, shared information, views and visiting before and after the events enriched each “Wildlife Wednesday” experience.


And a special thank you to those of you who joined the Alaska Wildlife Alliance, as well as to those who signed up to receive our alerts.

Thank you to our speakers Jay Beedle, Jayleen Beedle, Laurie Craig, Jno Didrickson, Mark Kelley and Emily Wall — you rocked!

Before and after our presentations, we enjoyed slide shows presented by Jos Bakker.

Thank you to the great folks at Heritage Coffee for generously donating coffee and condiments, and a special thanks to Holly Rebert for all her help. Thank you to Jim Green and Jos Bakker for handling coffee duty at each event. And to go with that delicious coffee, these hosts baked homemade treats: Dixie Alms, Jos Bakker, Gudrun Bergvall, Irene Morris, Pat O’Brien, Jenny Pursell and Linda Shaw.

Special thanks to Carol Young at UAS for her support.

It was great to have Sara Hagen from the UAS Bookstore selling books at our March “Wildlife Wednesdays.”

We appreciate the help we received from Jim Isturis and Sol Neely at UAS with securing the rooms for our lectures.

Many thanks to those who helped with advertising and newspaper coverage: Connie Brandel and Nancy Wallace at AWA for fliers; David Klein at UAS; Jeff Brown and KTOO; Dennis Harris and Capitol Copy; Amy Fletcher, Abby Lowell and Charles Ward at the Juneau Empire; Libby Stringer at Capital City Weekly; and the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council. And thank to to AWA-SE members and others who e-mailed and posted our fliers around town.

Last, but by no means least, thank you to all of the board members of AWA for their support and help with AWA-SE’s “Wildlife Wednesdays,” and to all of the dedicated AWA-SE board members, advisory board members, and active members who helped in many ways.

We had a great time with our winter “Wildlife Wednesdays,” and we are looking forward to the fall, 2012, series. You are going to love the speakers we have lined up for you!
