Julia Miles Kelvin High School '19
Today was day two on the tundra buggy. It started off early as usual with breakfast and a search for various pieces of equipment. About one hour into the tundra buggy drive, we found a mother with two cubs. It was a tough act to follow, but the ten other bears we saw today we equally as exciting. At times, we were observing three or four bears at once, making everything pretty hectic. Back at the CNSC, we had an evening talk from Caroline, a Churchill elder about the Dene people and their culture. The Junior Rangers also gave a short presentation. Data organization, mitten making and packing filled the rest of the evening, as we are leaving the CNSC tomorrow. It has been an amazing trip so far and it's been great meeting all the Baltimore and Churchill kids. I don't think any of us are ready to go home.
