The Long Journey Home

July 07, 2014 Posted by: K. VandenBerg

In late May, Dan and the Whales and Nails crew began their long journey back to Glacier Bay.Their 3,000 mile trip took them across the country from Maine to Bellingham and then north to Gustavus, Alaska by Marine Highway. Over the past two years Snow has been in good hands, but we are excited to have her home.  Her migration to and from Maine marks the culmination of 13 years of dedication and hard work by many park staff, partners, and volunteers. A beautiful outdoor pavilion awaits her return and will showcase the largest humpback skeleton on display in the United States. 

Whales and Nails is scheduled to arrive in Glacier Bay on May 28th and complete installation by June 7th. Stay tuned!
