SitkaNationalHistoricalParkSignSitka National Historical Park invites the public to attend two meetings and a “Walk-and-Talk” in February to comment on park plans to restore the view to the sea from the Tlingít fort site of Shis’kí Noow. The project goal is to restore the landscape to an appearance more closely representative of what it looked like in 1804, and provide visitors a more accurate and better physical representation of the 1804 Tlingít-Russian battlefield.

The two public meetings will begin with a presentation by the park’s Chief of Resources, Brinnen Carter PhD, at 5 p.m., on Wednesdays, Feb. 15 and Feb. 22 at the Sitka National Historical Park Visitor Center. The “Walk-and-Talk” will be held at noon on Feb. 15, starting at the Visitor Center, and will last approximately one hour.

At all three events, Dr. Carter will present the scope of the project, answer questions, and gather public opinion. Work is scheduled to take place this summer.

For more information, please contact Angie Richman at 747-0132.
