The Wilderness Society’s Arctic Refuge Experience. Step in. Step up. transports you on a journey through a year in the Arctic Refuge and introduces you to the damaging effects that oil and gas drilling will have on this essential environment. The Experience brings the beauty and vastness of the Arctic Refuge to visitors who would never otherwise get the chance to travel there.
As the Trump administration plans to open the Refuge to drilling for the first time ever, visitors will even have the chance to take action to protect the Refuge by becoming a “shareholder” in the No Waaay Corp., the first-ever collective action corporation created solely to stop Big Oil from destroying public lands.
