Take a trip with Chena Hot Springs Resort owner Bernie Karl

Chena Hot Springs Resort owner Bernie Karl has a lot of ideas intended to create a utopia of environmental sustainability at the end of Chena Hot Springs Road outside Fairbanks. Karl says Chena Hot Springs is in the middle of a 20-year development plan, which already includes a geothermal plant that began operating in 2006. It creates enough electricity to power the entire resort. His latest project is using crushed recycled glass to grow tomatoes.
