Winter Movie Program, April 4-5
The Winter Film Flurry continues at Sitka National Historical Park with a desert theme. On Saturday April 4th, the film Mojave National Preserve: A Place to Explore will guide the viewer on a tour of this vast expanse of desert and examine the variety of life that thrives within the harsh Mojave desert ecosystem. Our southwest journey continues with a visit to White Sands National Monument on Sunday April 5th with the film Like No Place Else on Earth. This film shows the wonders that exist in the Tularosa Basin of New Mexico in the largest gypsum dune field in the world. 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.
