Talk about wild and remote...and magnificent! This area approaching the Copper River Watershed gives you some sense of the extent to which our travels have taken us in search of inspiring young environmental activists. We started in Cordova on Prince William Sound and had a wonderful visit with the Laird family on board their 56' cutter, the s/v Seal. This family: mom, dad and two daughters have lived on board and traveled to the high latitudes in both the northern and southern hemispheres, New Zealand, the South Pacific and the Sea of Japan. The girls have been homeschooled (one is currently a freshman at Dartmouth and the other to enter Oxford next fall). They are both wonderfully representative of the kind of smart, committed, inspiring youth that our search around the world seeks to identify. Thank you Laird's for a wonderful evening on board. Check out their website, www.expeditionsail.com . We also had the opportunity to visit the offices of the Eyak Preservation Council, www.eyakpreservationcouncil.org, and the Copper River Watershed Project, www.copperriver.org, both of which are doing amazing work. Thank you Lisa, Kate and Skye for your time, your perspective and your enthusiastic support for the House on Fire project.
