Ned Rozell, science writer for UAF’s Geophysical Institute, will be giving a presentation about hiking the entire length of the Alyeska Pipeline — twice — at the Noel Wien Library Auditorium on Monday. The talk is hosted by Arctic Audubon and will start at 7 p.m.

In 1997, Rozell became the first person with a dog to hike the 800 miles of gravel service road that parallels the trans-Alaska pipeline. In 2017, he became the second. Why would anyone want to walk next to a pipe? And what changed in 20 years?

The public is invited to attend and admission is free. For more information, call Melissa Sikes at 907-347-1802 or email
