Sitka Sound Science Center hosts youth Eco-Discovery event on Feb. 2

Join us to learn what’s in a wetland from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Feb. 2, at the Sitka Sound Science Center. Participate in games and activities that help you explore the soil, crawling critters and wildlife found in healthy wetlands. Those who take the journey earn their very own Eco-Discovery button upon completion.

There will be multiple stations with hands-on activities appropriate for children between kindergarten and sixth grade. The expected time it takes to solve the mystery is 30-45 minutes. Kids should be accompanied by an adult. There is an optional guided tour of Starrigavan State Park after the event, but you must provide your own transportation.

Eco-Discovery is coordinated by a partnership between the Sitka Sound Science Center, Sitka National Historical Park and USDA Forest Service. For more information about the event, contact Kristina Tirman of Sitka Sound Science Center at or Karen Weaver of Sitka National Historical Park at 747-0110.
