Enjoy a day in Glacier Bay!
Estuaries form in Glacier Bay where salty ocean water mixes with fresh water flowing from a river. They create special environments teeming with life.
From the tops of the mountains to the depths of the bay, watersheds sustain all life in Glacier Bay.
About the Artist
Jona Van Zyle’s artwork and intricate beading have been exhibited and published around the world. In 2007, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park chose Jona to create their ornament for the White House Christmas Tree. Jona enjoys using native materials, like moose hide, and salmon skin, to create art that reflects her passion for Alaska’s wild places. Jona and her husband, Jon are both working artists living near Eagle River, Alaska, where they also raise and train Siberian Huskies. Combining art and their love for Alaska, they were chosen to be the first husband and wife team to be Artists-In-Residence at Denali National Park (2004), and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park (2006).
