All About Belugas
Start: Thursday, April 18, 2013
Girdwood , AK 99587
Join wildlife biologists Tamara McGuire and Amber Stephens of LGL Research Associates for a talk about the Cook Inlet beluga whales designed for younger children. They'll talk about the biology of these unique whales and how they use the waters of Turnagain Arm to eat, swim, and raise their young. Amber and Tamara can recognize most of the whales by sight, and will be sharing stories about beluga whales they have come to know over the years. Kids will also have the chance to help name a beluga!
There is an optional field trip on Saturday, April 20th to join the biologists as they look for Cook Inlet beluga whales that may be traveling along Turnagain Arm (from a fixed location to be announced at class). Bring binoculars and cameras if you have them, and dress warmly! You must provide your own transportation to participate in the field trip.
