We are very excited to hold a FREE weekend tour of Sitka as a Field Station from May 5 – 7th, 2017 for faculty members across the nation that are interested in Field Course development in conjunction to Sitka’s and Southeast Alaska’s resources. During this event, we will have local experts guest speak where they will explain the wonderful opportunities for field coursework in Sitka. Additionally, we will take you to the hotspots of Sitka! There are limited spots available, so act fast!

The Sitka Sound Science Center offers support services for colleges and universities who wish to conduct field courses in Sitka, one of the greatest natural classrooms in the world. Colleges and universities bring their professors, their students, and their classes to Sitka, where the Science Center can provide local knowledge, field trip coordination, and expertise on hiking kayaking, and logistical support.
The Sheldon Jackson Campus (owned and operated by the Sitka Fine Arts Camp) can provide housing, dining services and recreational facilities. Science Center staff members are available for assistance with curriculum development and can provide a “menu” of local experts that are willing to share and create unique hands-on, outdoor and local experiences. Few locations offer the tangibility, diversity, accessibility and support of Sitka.
