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!

Did You Know?

Hoary Marmot

The Hoary Marmot is the largest member of the ground squirrels. These guys hibernate half or more of their life away. They have very thick fur and a substantial fat layer that protects them from the cold. You are not as likely to see them on hot days as they hide in the shade to keep cool.
