"Connecting with Life in a Virtual Age"
6:00pm - Outdoor Education Information Fair
7:00pm - Richard Louv's presetation: "Connecting with life in a virtual age" Do you spend more time glued to a screen than getting out and enjoying Alaska's great outdoors? Recent statistics show that's the case for more of us than we might like to admit. The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services reports that over one-third of Alaskan adults and half of Alaskan high school students spent 3 or more hours in front of a screen (not counting what they spent at work or school). Yet, there is plenty of opportunity to get outside in Alaska; 88% of Alaska's acreage is in public ownership. "The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need." Richard Louv
