Exit Glacier Area Local History Project
Contact: Shannon Kovac, 907.422.0541
Kenai Fjords National Park is hosting a public meeting to present an update on an oral history project that has recorded the uses of the Exit Glacier area before it became a National Park in 1980. Hunting, trapping, snowmachining, and guiding were just a few of the topics that were explored during the project. These interviews, photos and maps are now illustrated on Project Jukebox, a digital oral history program at the University of Fairbanks. Join us for a preview on Friday, October 5 at 6:30 pm in the Seward Community Library!

“Killer whales” or orcas are actually quite friendly and often inquisitive about humans. In fact, the group of “resident killer whales” pictured here feeds entirely on fish. Only “transient killer whales” eat marine mammals. No wild killer whale has ever hurt a human being.
