Learn about local climbing, cameras & what’s up with bears lately?

Clint Helander

2017 will be remembered in part as the “Year of the Bear” in Southcentral Alaska. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’ll talk about why we had scary and tragic incidents, and why far more bears were killed in Anchorage than usual. For something a bit more fun, we also have a segment on rock and ice climbing, a sports that is exploding in popularity, with great opportunities to learn inside and out.
