THE LAST GREAT WILDERNESS PROJECT



PHOTOGRAPHER AND ARCTIC NATIVE BRING WILDERNESS TOUR TO OHIO AND MICHIGAN



Lenny Kohm, acclaimed wildlife photographer, will be touring Northeast Ohio

and Western Michigan, in September.  Lenny and a member of the Gwitch'in

Nation, will speak to communities during a two week tour of the region.

The tandem will present the Last Great Wilderness Project, a multi-media

presentation on the unique wilderness and culture of the Arctic National

Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.



Your group can help make this tour a success by hosting a show, its FREE. 



For over a decade, Lenny has been travelling all across the United States

to warn people of the impacts development would have on one of America's

unique treasures.  In the summer of 1987, Kohm was contacted by a national

outdoor magazine to photograph the coastal plain of the Arctic National

Wildlife Refuge.  Since then, he has devoted his life to assisting the

aboriginal people of the Refuge in trying to protect their cultural and

natural values. 



In an effort to permanently protect this last great wilderness, we are

asking for your help to make this project a success.  Again, there is no

fee for this program, so if you and your group are interested in hosting a

show please contact Jeremy Sheaffer at the Alaska Wilderness League (202)

544-5205 or (800) 322-5205 for more information.
