National Parks Conservation Association to host events in Sitka on Friday and Saturday

Jim Adams and Erica Carroll of the National Parks Conservation Association will be in Sitka on Friday and Saturday, May 4-5, and will host three events in conjunction with Sitka National Historical Park and Sitka Conservation Society. The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) is an independent group that promotes and protects America’s National Park System.

Join Sitka Conservation Society from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, May 4, at Sitka Kitch community rental commercial kitchen (505 Sawmill Creek Road, inside First Presbyterian Church) for a potluck and a short presentation from NPCA about their work in Alaska and beyond. Sitka National Historical Park​ Superintendent David Elkowitz also will share an update on our local park leading into the summer season. This event is open to all. Please bring something to share. An RSVP is recommended, but not required.

Erica and Jim will be at the Backdoor Café from 9-11 a.m. on Saturday morning, May 5, for a meet and greet over coffee. We’ll be the strangers with NPCA hats — come say “hello.”

Finally, from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday afternoon is a National Park Youth Fair. Bring the whole family for an informal afternoon of youth activities, such as bird walks, crafts, and science explorations. There also will be booths from the National Parks Conservation Association and Sitka Sound Science Center.
