Learn about Dog Sledding and the Iditarod with Musher Karen Land

by | Mar 2, 2022

Official Musher and Iditarod Racer Karen Land is touring the country with her dogs Noggin, an Alaskan husky, and Chloe, a corgi-springer mix – and they are coming to the Auburn Public Library.

Why do dogs wear booties? Do they like to run in the cold? How long and how far can they run?

Join us on Saturday, March 5th at 9:00am for a fascinating program about the history of the Iditarod, Karen’s experiences of endurance and partnership with her dogs, information about sled dogs and how they are bred, and much more.

And yes, attendees may pet the dogs and take photos at the end of the program! Space is limited: This family program is focused on older children and adults; however younger children are welcome if they are old enough to understand and enjoy the program.

Saturday March 5th | 9:00am – 10:00am | Merriam Room  |  Registration Required | Every person must be registered

Depending upon capacity, masks may be required to ensure health and safety for all attendees.

The Library opens at 10:00am | Doors will open at 8:45am for patrons to check in for the program.
