If you've ever had the urge to pack up and head for the Arctic, your dreams can now come true -- and without you leaving the DMV!

Wilderness Society, Gwich’in Steering Committee, and the Arctic Refuge Defense Campaign are hosting an sensory immersion into the Arctic Refuge right in DC the weekend of Nov. 8. The exhibit will include video projections, sounds and scents all meant to transport you right to the Arctic.

“The goal is to bring the Arctic Refuge to life knowing it’s this incredible, pristine landscape in the northernmost part of our country,” says Lulu Gephart, senior director of marketing for the Wilderness Society, a nonprofit land conservation organization.

Just think, Caribou, the scent of pines and of course the breathtaking landscape all for the price of $10 per adult. All proceeds for the pop-up will benefit the Gwich’in people who are indigenous to the area.

The exhibit will be open Friday through Sunday from noon to 8 p.m. and Monday 11 a.m. until 7p.m.
