Glacier BayGlacier Bay Youth Trips

HHF partners with several entities coordinating two trips into Glacier Bay National Park with students from the Hoonah City Schools, clan elders and leaders.  The partners that provide logistical and financial support for this project are the National Park Service [NPS], Allen Marine Tours, HHF and the Hoonah City Schools [HCS].  The students spend a day in May and in September learning about the Tlingit history in Glacier Bay through interacting with elders, seeing first-hand some of the Hoonah Tlingit traditional territory and by participating in structured cultural learning activities.
