Learning about the Great Race – Iditarod and Alaskan People
This Del Mar Pines School Assembly inspired all with interactive information on Iditarod and the Alaskan people. During this assembly, teachers received hands-on training and the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classes learned about the life of a musher in Alaska
Willow and Cabo are retired racing dogs who travel to schools to help educate students about the fascinating history behind the Iditarod and the Alaskan people who carry on the tradition of this great race.
Speaker Lorraine Temple inspired students to follow their dreams. Lorraine started the Husky Ranch on 10 acres near Homer (“The Halibut Capital of the World”) on the Kenai Peninsula. She also created a dog mushing show to educate people about this exciting form of adventure and the opportunity to interact with the natural environment.
