Alaska Art Adventure Opportunity

The Voices of the Wilderness is an art residency program that pairs intrepid artists with wilderness rangers. Participants not only fill sketchbooks, but they also get a chance to learn about research, monitoring, and education. 

Over the years, several GurneyJourneyers have seized the opportunity, including Robin Peterson who went to Tebenkof Bay Wilderness last summer (left).

According to Barbara Lydon of the US Forest Service, who helps organize it, "The program continues to grow—and is really gaining momentum and support."

I highly recommend this program! I've done it twice (Chugach and Tongass) and it has been life changing. The Forest Rangers are the best, fun to hang out with and full of knowledge and love for the environment. I collected enough material and inspiration for two one person shows that I am having in the fall. To get a taste of the day-to-day experience, you can check out my journal at
