Hear how a research project combining scientific solutions with Native American knowledge and traditions can slow climate change!
In 2017, Tony Manzara (retired 3M chemist) and his spouse Connie Kirk (retired 3M accountant and self-employed caterer) traveled with representatives of the non-profit company Ice911 to conduct research on how to slow the melting of the polar ice cap. In partnership with a Native corporation in Utqiagvik–formerly Barrow, Alaska–the project included protecting arctic ice with eco-friendly materials that reflect away the sun’s heat.
Join us at this unique joint event of Stillwater NAPAC and Sally Manzara Interpretive Nature Center to learn how combining Inuit values and traditional practices with modern scientific methods can change the Earth.
