A mystery has taken place at the park, and we need Sitka’s youth sleuths to help us solve the caper. Crack the case by using investigative techniques to eliminate suspects and earn your very own Eco-Detective’s button.
The final installment, in the three-part Eco-Detective Series will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 25, at Sitka National Historical Park’s visitor center. The first two installments took place on Sept. 17 and Oct. 22.
Join park rangers and scientists from the Sitka Sound Science Center and the Sitka Conservation Society to help crack the Case of the Stolen Lunch. The series is designed for youth from kindergarten through sixth grade, and it is free and self-paced. On average it takes participants between 30-45 minutes to complete the program. Youth participants must be accompanied by an adult.
