Hi all,

March 29th at 1pm we're going to meet at the Alaska Public Lands Information Center downtown (the old Federal building).  They will give us a brief introduction send the kids on a scavenger hunt (in the building) and they have a movie for them too.  It is free, but you might want to bring some quarters for parking.

This is the except from their newsletter:

Alaska Animal Scavenger Hunt
Join rangers in exploring the visitor center for wild Alaskan animals. The exhibitry at Alaska Public Lands Information Center provides an opportunity for groups to view wild animals at a close (and safe) distance. Species include brown bear, wolverine, Dall sheep, caribou, arctic fox, polar bear, and many more. The scavenger hunts includes hands-on materials (skulls, furs, stamps, and other “touchy-feely things”). Group tours include a short introduction to Alaska’s parks and public lands (20-25 minutes), a movie of your choice (30-40 minutes), and an age-appropriate scavenger hunt (30 minutes). Programs typically last 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Addresses Alaska State Standards Science A12, A15, B1, and D1.
Scavenger hunt subjects include Alaska’s Birds, Animals, and Alaska’s Native Peoples. Movie titles include Alaska’s Coolest Animals, Alaska’s Three Bears, and the Biggest Bears.

I told them we'd have at least 10 kids plus parents.  So, mark your calendar and please plan to join us.
