Join us on a 12 day wilderness birding adventure along the western boundary of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Beginning on the scenic Marsh Fork, we descend through the rugged mountains of the Brooks Range, northeast to the confluence with the main stem of the Canning River.

The refuge is home to 42 mammal species, including more than 120,000 head of caribou; 36 species of fish, and over 160 species of birds. Many of these birds migrate to and from all fifty states and from six continents to feed and reproduce, taking full advantage of the burst of biological growth which blossoms here in the long days of the Arctic summer.
