At our September 2022 General Meeting, our very own David Manuwal regaled his adventures as a young scientist studying birds in the virtually unexplored and very wild Noatak River drainage in northern Alaska in the early ’70s. His research, as well as that of other scientists on the expedition from a variety of disciplines, helped the National Park Service present to Congress the recommendation to create the Noatak Natural Preserve.
