Hig and Erin Higman took on North America’s largest tidewater glacier to learn about climate change, trekking with their toddler and baby. They will talk about their experiences at 7 p.m. tonight at Islands and Ocean Visitors Center.
The talk is called “Life on Ice.” Over the course of two months in the wilderness, they watched a world in transformation.
Dramatic coastal erosion, newborn lakes, disappearing rivers, giant bears, and forests on shifting ice make this 1,000-square mile glacier one of the most dynamic places in the world.
Along with the challenges, their experience is defined by this extraordinary glacier – the last of a dying breed – and by the day-to-day trek as a family of four.
