A National Park Ranger will guide students through a facilitated dialogue program focused on marine debris as a global ocean issue. Instead of handing out answers the ranger will ask questions aimed to engage students in a meaningful conversation. This program will be supplemented with relevant photo and video content including information from the Kenai Fjords area.

Kenai Fjords education staff can visit your classroom for free using H.323 video conference technology (Polycom, Cisco/Tandberg, LifeSize, etc).
