Almost a year ago, Lia Heifetz and eleven others left their home of Juneau to experience how the Pacific Ocean impacts the planet for “A Trip South.” From Douglas Island the team kayaked down the Inside Passage, camping on rocky beaches and working with the elements to safely paddle the series of straits and channels that connect southeast Alaska to western British Columbia and Puget Sound. Ninety-three-days later, the group arrived in Lady Smith Harbor on Vancouver Island where they transitioned to biking down the pacific coast towards Central and South America.
This Thursday, Lia and Lucy will be on KXLL to talk about the experience and their upcoming slide show event this First Friday at 7 p.m. at the Silverbow. Tune into “Annie on the Spot” at 4:00 to hear Lia discuss the upcoming event and find out where the “A Trip South” team is now.
