Sitka Sound Science Center, Sitka National Historical Park host Eco-Detectives event on April 27

A mystery has taken place at Sitka Sound Science Center, 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.

Students can help solve the Case of the Unidentified Swimming Object (USO) by joining the fund from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, April 27, at the Sitka Sound Science Center (Note: this is a teacher in-service day, so no school). Explore wildlife behaviors, plant adaptations, and local seasonal changes to solve the case. The Eco-Detectives series is hosted by the Sitka Sound Science Center and the  Sitka National Historical Park. 

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 Callie Simmons at 747-8878 or
