    Wildlife Wednesdays: The Making of a Musk Ox
    Mat-Su College FSM Building Room 202. With Dani Biersteker of The Musk Ox Farm. The Musk Ox Farm, home to survivors of the last Ice Age and part of a unique domestication project dating back to 1954. This non profit is devoted to a gentle approach to animal husbandry that requires animal contact and handling far beyond mainstream agriculture, and culminates in the hand combing of these magnificent creatures for their qiviut, one of the rarest fibers in the world.
