Power To Be volunteer, participants travel North with Students On Ice
It’s hard to put into words the sensory experiences that come along with a journey to the Arctic. The sound of the air bubbles cracking through the ice, releasing oxygen that was frozen into those pockets thousands of years ago. The thrill of watching a polar bear saunter across an ice flow, eventually disappearing into the fog. The grace of the Inuk elder’s hands as she scrapes an ulu across a seal hide.
And to think that we could ever call this landscape barren when it is bursting with life both big and small.
