There is a mystery that needs to be solved in Sitka National Historical Park, and your students are needed to get to the bottom of this caper. Schedule a field trip to the park to participate in this program and give your students the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the role wildlife and humans play in protected places like national parks. During Mystery in the Trees, students will use their detective skills to investigate four "suspects" and act as judge and jury to determine if there is a guilty suspect or not.
