Denali is a
fascinating wilderness carefully protected from the impact of humans.
The animal residents "own" this huge national park and
visitors give them the right of way. Denali's two peaks tower over the
rugged landscape comprised of tundra over permafrost. Visiting this
beautiful place is a rare experience.

Field Trip Update
If you have an idea for future field trips please email
Carol Walsh at email@example.com. She
is keeping a "running list" to see which places are
appropriate for the season and how many members are interested.
Some ideas from last SVNP meeting were:
Chatham, Ma- to see the seals. (Checking on best time to see them.)
Far North in Maine to see the moose. This would have to be an overnight
since it is a 6 hour trip. Best seasons to see moose is in the
spring or October.
Upcoming field trips:
Wayne will keep a look out for the ice breaking up in Walden Pond for a
local field trip. Possibly in March, but this is ice dependent!
Carol will find a date in April
or May for a full day trip to Newbury, Ma. to photograph salt marshes
and surrounding areas of Parker River, Pine River and Plum Island.
Look for a special SVNP email which will be sent with details about
these spring photo opportunities.
