Karen Land, a writer, public speaker, and wilderness advocate, will share her experiences with Iditarod dog mushing.
Land will introduce her two dogs Noggin and Chloe, display her Iditarod dog sled and mushing gear.
Participants are welcome to ask questions through the chat box at the conclusion of this program.
