Kenai Fjords National Park invites you to an open house on Friday, June 29, 2012 at the Exit Glacier Nature Center. The park will be highlighting recent improvements in the Exit Glacier area, including our newly installed Exit Glacier Nature Center exhibits, fuel cell, pavilion, picnic area, wayside exhibits, and trail improvements. The park will be celebrating its partners that participated in the tour boat booklet program, which generated half of the revenue used for these projects. Partners include Alaska Geographic, Major Marine Tours, Kenai Fjords Tours, and Holland America. We hope you can join us!
The event will be held at the Exit Glacier Nature Center on Friday, June 29, 2012 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
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.
