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!
