The Backwoods and Waters series is a mix of wintertime lectures and summer boat trips to some of the most ecologically interesting and important places on the Tongass. The program is an opportunity for Sitkans to learn about the natural history of their homes and the surrounding environment.
Typically, SCS hosts five summer boat trips on Allen Marine sightseeing catamarans. These trips feature an onboard expert speaker to talk about topics from whales to past volcanic activity. The winter series features monthly lectures about the natural history of Southeast Alaska, often drawing capacity crowds at the University of Alaska Southeast.
Check back in the spring for the most current schedule for summer boat cruises.
