Patricia Hostiuck
Jun 13 - 25, 2014
Smithsonian Study Leader Patricia Hostiuck is a popular and respected naturalist whose work has taken her nearly “pole-to-pole,” from Greenland, Iceland, Siberia, the Canadian High Arctic and Alaska south to Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, the Falklands, Tristan da Cunha, South Georgia and Antarctica. She has served as a study leader on numerous Smithsonian tours. Teaching in the field about the natural world, she has shared her expertise in mammals, birds, insects and plants aboard ships and on the trail with thousands of fellow explorers in dozens of remote areas. Patty’s unabashed enthusiasm for natural history, backed by her encyclopedic knowledge, makes learning come alive for all who travel with her. Patty looks forward to returning to Alaska where she began her career as a ranger for Tongass and Chugach National Forests plying the waters of the Inside Passage and Prince William Sound.
