Host of Encounters, Richard Nelson is the public radio tour guide through Alaska’s wild lands. Whether its dall sheep, musk ox, the bore tide or belugas, Encounters gives listeners a better understanding and appreciation of the natural wonders that many Alaskans have come to accept as part of everyday life. When Anchorage audiences gathered to hear Nelson speak at the Anchorage Museum for the APRN Speaker Series on November 2, Nelson discussed what he considers to be three Alaskan miracles – salmon, grizzly bears and caribou.
