A mystery has taken place at the Sitka National Historical Park, and we need youth sleuths from Sitka to help us solve the caper. Crack the case by using investigative techniques to eliminate suspects and earn your very own Eco-Discovery button upon completion of the investigation.
The first installment of the Eco-Detective Series will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 17, at the visitor center. Join park rangers and scientists from the Sitka Sound Science Center and the Sitka Conservation Society to help crack the Case of the Lost Egg. The series is designed for youth from kindergarten through sixth grade. Youth participants must be accompanied by an adult. There are two more installments on Oct. 29 and Nov. 25.
