Weekend Movie Program - February 28
Sitka National Historical Park will be continuing our weekend movie series with two movies at the visitor center theater. The film on Saturday, February 28th, will be Crown of the Continent. Come explore the world of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve and its majestic mountain ranges, glacier-carved valleys, and the highest coastal range in the world. On Sunday, March 1th, the film will be Heartbeats of Denali; come and take a journey through Denali’s seasons, fly along the ridges, and trek across the tundra. These films will be shown on the hour, every hour, from 9am to 4pm. It is free and open to everyone, so stop by the visitor center before your walk through the park this coming weekend. For more information contact Chad Corey at 747-0110.
