Everyone who calls Sitka home is a part of the story told at Sitka National Historical Park, and we’d like you to tell us how we’re doing.  The oldest national park in Alaska, used daily for nearly one hundred years by local Sitkans, shares the living culture of the Tlingit, Russia’s long history in Southeast Alaska, and the amazing ecosystems which have shaped those stories each day to visitors from around the world.  Please join us in the park’s auditorium on Friday, March 20th at 7:00 PM or Saturday, March 21st at 1:00 PM to help us evaluate how we tell these stories, to provide your thoughts and ideas, and to help us shape the future of Sitka NHP for years to come.
