Sitka National Historical Park will offer two free upcoming environmental education programs for kids.
Elementary-aged students are invited to join a ranger from 10-10:45 a.m. on Saturday, July 25, to learn about the temperate rain forest and its organisms. Rangers will be taking participants on a hike through the park, so children should be prepared for rain/shine, dress in layers and wear appropriate footwear.
From 10-10:45 a.m. on Wednesday, July 29, the park will host a second youth program focusing on the park’s biodiversity and highlighting how the food chain plays a vital role in the park’s various ecosystems. This program will be held outside, so children should be prepared for variable weather conditions.
