Programs are offered between Memorial Day weekend (last weekend in May) and Labor Day (first Monday in September), unless otherwise noted.

Fjord Junior Ranger Walk
Walks that are geared especially for our younger visitors are offered
This guided walk along the Seward waterfront gives Junior Rangers an interactive look at the fjord ecosystem of Resurrection Bay, and the chance to earn their Junior Fjord Ranger Patch. Lasting about 1 hour and 30 minutes, the walk will follow the coastline near town, and depending on tides, the walk will take place on rocky beach with some uneven footing. Best suited for ages 8-12, with one or more accompanying adults.
