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!
Did You Know?
River otters defecate in certain spots to mark their territory. Researchers in Kenai Fjords National Park have discovered that these "latrine sites" enrich the soil, allowing plants to grow in those spots that aren't found anywhere else close by.
