Chasing Ice Worms in Tibet

Join former Seward resident Mike Tetreau on Thursday, May 22, 6:30 pm at the Seward public library for a presentation on his recent trip to Tibet in search of ice worms. Tetreau has a bachelor’s degree in Wildlife and Wildland Recreation Management from Washington State University and worked as a natural resource manager for Kenai Fjords National Park from 1987 to 2006. He now resides in Forks, Washington and works part-time as a biological technician for Olympic National Park. He became fascinated with ice worms after his first encounter with them in the early 1990’s around Seward. As luck would have it, he soon crossed paths with Dr. Dan Shain from Rutgers University who was also interested in ice worms. Since then, Dan and Mike have hunted the ice worm throughout the Pacific Northwest, and most recently in the Himalaya Mountains of eastern Tibet.
