Ginny Hill Wood passed away on March 8, 2013 at her Fairbanks home. Her vision and perservance is woven into the fabric of our lives, from beloved ski and bike trails, Creamer's Field Refuge to Camp Denali, to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. A celebration of life will be held Sunday April 7 at 1 pm at the UAF Wood Center ballroom. Active in the Northern Center from its launch in 1971, she penned her column, From the Woodpile, in our newsletter for 23 years (1982 to 2005) about living sustainably in the north, the latest roads schemes through parks, to the continuing fight to protect wilderness.
