Sitka WhaleFest has been a Southeast Alaska tradition for more than 20 years. The 2017 theme, “The Making-Of: Behind the Scenes of Science,” will be incorporated throughout this year’s festival, running from Nov. 3-5. Can’t-miss events include a free film fest, a family concert and the WhaleFest Run.
During the three-day symposium, explore unsung aspects of marine science, what drives scientists in the field and how they share findings. World-renowned scientists will discuss their current projects, connecting them to daily themes such as “Serendipity,” “Linking Up” and “Action.”
Registration is open to the public here.
