Sitka National Historical Park hosts youth Eco-Detectives event on Sept. 29

A mystery has taken place at Sitka National Historical 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-Detectives button upon completion of the investigation.

The first installment of this fall’s Eco-Detectives series will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Sept. 29, at the park’s Visitor Center (this is a teacher in-service day). Join park rangers from Sitka National Historical Park and scientists from the Sitka Sound Science Center and the Sitka Conservation Society to help crack the Mystery in the Trees. 

The series, which is offered free to the public, is designed for youth from kindergarten through sixth grade, and is self-paced. On average it takes participants between 30-45 minutes to complete the program.  Youth participants must be accompanied by an adult. For more information about the Eco-Detectives series, contact Ryan Carpenter at 747-0121.

The Eco-Detectives series is a collaborative effort between the National Park Service, the Sitka Sound Science Center, the Sitka Conservation Society, and 4H.
