Sitka National Historical Park (September 6, 2011)

Sitka National Historical Park wraps up its summer evening program series.

Thursday, September 8th
Southeast's Salmon
7:00 p.m.

Come join Ranger Ellen Corak for a presentation about salmon and their importance to both the ecosystem and culture of Southeast Alaska. We will start in the Visitor Center's auditorium then walk out to Indian River so come prepared for the weather!

Thursday, September 15th
Bentwood Box Cooking Demonstration
7:00 p.m.

The final evening presentation of the 2011 season will be a program about the bentwood box.
Don't miss this chance to learn how these uniquely fabricated containers were constructed and observe the way they were used for cooking food by the Tlingit and other Native people of the Pacific Northwest.

Please note, this is a family program for people of all ages, but children need to be accompanied by an adult. A portion of the program will be held outside on the porch, so be sure to dress for outdoor weather.
