Winter Film Series to highlight the brown bears of Admiralty Island in March

March Film Series

Admiralty Island, located to the northeast of Sitka’s Baranof Island, is home to the densest brown bear population in North America. Showtimes are 7 p.m. on Friday, March 27, and again at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 28. Fortress of the Bears, a one-hour PBS film, will be screened at the Sitka National Historical Park’s visitor center. This film takes a close look at the lives of these brown bears and their complex relationship to the world around them.

Be sure to leave room for snacks, as free popcorn will be provided during both screenings. Attendees to the film series will also be eligible to win door prizes provided by park partners.

The Winter Film Series, held monthly at Sitka National Historical Park’s visitor center, is jointly presented by Sitka National Historical Park, Sitka Conservation Society, and the Sitka Sound Science Center.
