Schmoe will be taking part in a live Twitter chat: #BLMIditaChat on Wednesday, January 20th. The Alaska Bureau of Land Management is hosting the event “Sled Dog Tales: Talk with Alaska Sled Dogs” for students to ask Schmoe and other sled dogs from around the state about the Iditarod and their life as a sled dog.
Of course, as Schmoe doesn’t have opposable thumbs and can’t touch type, he will get some human help to answer the questions.
Teachers, students and families of all grade levels are invited to take part. The flyer, above, has details about how you can join in the fun.
