Join JFCS Center for Senior Enrichment and Kenai Fjords National Park for a 2 part series as we explore Alaska with experienced rangers from Kenai Fjords National Park.
Below are the dates and program details:
November 2 at 11am: Glacier Detectives Presented by Ranger Tess
We will learn why we have national parks and be inspired by glaciers and ecosystems in Alaska. What is a glacier and how is it formed? As glacial detectives, we will observe the clues that a glacier leaves behind and begin to understand how parts of our planet have been shaped by ice.
MORE ABOUT RANGER TESS:
Tess has worn many hats but feels incredibly lucky to have found the Kenai Fjords National Park, where her love for the outdoors can shine and be shared with others.
January 19 at 1pm: Listening to the Ice Presented by Ranger Leah
What is global warming and climate change? How are they caused, and how they are impacting our planet? A Ranger will use Kenai Fjords National Park as a looking glass through which to observe our planet’s health. The Ranger will engage participants with questions, video content and other techniques in order to broaden their local and global understanding of climate change and leave them with a hopeful attitude about the future of our natural environment.
MORE ABOUT RANGER LEAH:
Leah had the fortunate opportunity to join Kenai Fjords National Park as a Lead Interpretation/Education Ranger. She said goodbye to cuddling walruses (an actual job), soothing baby beluga (again an actual job) and her windowless office (really a storage closet) and said hello to glaciers, mountains, and you!
