After a two-years' absence, the Center's "Food Web Cruise" will depart from Sitka's Crescent Harbor at 8:30 a.m. April 2. A fundraiser for November's "Whalefest" symposium, the Food Web Cruise is an unparalleled opportunity to view the richness of life in Sitka Sound as the herring return to spawn.
Justine Webb is the field station coordinator for the Sitka Sound Science Center and Jan Straley is a humpback whale biologist with the University of Alaska Southeast. They're preparing for this Saturday's Food Web Cruise (8:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 24, departing from Crescent Harbor; tickets $55 including brunch, available at Old Harbor Books or on the dock).
As spring nears, Janet Clarke, education manager at Sitka Sound Science Center was joined by Science Outreach Coordinator Mia Kuartei to talk about several upcoming events. Downloadable audio.Read More
