A Call for Sled Dogs

oie_9616117jY7WlEQWe’re looking for sled dogs (and their mushers) who would like to participate in a unique opportunity to tell the world about mushing and sled dog racing!

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is hosting the fourth annual “IditaChat” on Twitter, on January 20, 2016. “Sled Dog Tales: Talk with Alaska Sled Dogs,” will be a live Twitter conversation for youth, schoolchildren, and anyone interested in hearing about what sled dogs think and experience on the trail and at home in their kennels, as interpreted by their mushers.

oie_962049NMMW71xBMushers and their dogs are being selected at this time for an opportunity to appear “live and in fur” at the Federal Building and Courthouse in Anchorage for this event. Special access has been granted for a limited number of sled dogs, to be selected from the applicants. If you – and your favorite sled dog – would like to join us for this unique opportunity please contact Karen Laubenstein at klaubens@blm.gov
