On Friday, Nov. 28, Sitka National Historical Park will offer a fun-filled morning of art in the park for children and their families as part of the Junior Ranger program. Kids can paint their very own Russian nesting dolls, participate in traditional Native art activities, and learn to sketch. Children will have the opportunity to earn both the new Junior Ranger patch and the Junior Ranger badge.
The program takes place from 10 a.m. to noon at Sitka National Historical Park’s Visitor Center at 106 Metlakatla Street. Please note that this is a family activity and all children must be supervised.
