Plan a Field Trip
Sitka National Historical Park can serve as an engaging and authentic learning environment for your students. Whether it is the rich cultural history of Native southeast Alaskan traditional art, the Battle of 1804, the historic Russian Bishop's House or the diverse natural resources the park protects, the park can be a great classroom for your students.
Are your students ready to explore the flora and fauna of the park's intertidal zone, or perhaps learn about traditional cooking with a bentwood box? These are just two of the many topics that park staff can present educational programs about. To learn more about the programs offered at the park, check out the By-Request Ranger Programs page. Seasonal programs are offered on many various cultural and natural resource subjects. Consult the program descriptions listed below or the field trip calendar.
