Wonderful store. I went before Christmas.

It was an extra exciting morning at Kellogg FIELD School! #MSOEE student, Emily Miller, arranged for a plane landing and pilot guest speakers to teach her Ravens about flight. This sessions they’re studying Ducks and Geese of Alaska’s Wetlands, and this special guest appearance taught them about how planes are modeled after birds for flight. All our Ravens and Magpies got to watch the landing and ask the pilots some questions. Special thanks to pilots Elliot and Kole for bringing the plane and their expertise to share with FILED School! ... See MoreSee Less

A meaningful share from former Kellogg FIELD School Instructor Lynda!My name is Lynda and I am a Park Ranger at Kenai Fjords National Park.

What I enjoy most about working here, beyond the amazing scenery, wildlife and glaciers, is having the platform to take up space as a Black Indigenous Ranger in a National Park.

I feel that I have a unique relationship with Alaskan Parks being Black and Indigenous. My ancestors are Yup’ik, of western Alaska and I am proud to work here in the traditional land of the Sugpiak people. I sometimes wear my traditional parka, made of seal skin, lined with wolf and caribou hide. I am happy to share with visitors how my people have traditionally been and continue to be stewards of the land. Alaska Native people are here and we are strong and resilient.

National Parks are for everyone; today and tomorrow. I see myself reflected in the history of the parks in the faces of the Buffalo Soldiers who not only patrolled parks in California, but also in Alaska during the gold rush. I see my ancestors in the abundant wildlife, I hear them in the caw of the raven and feel them on the katabatic winds that rush off the ice field. My hope is that people who also look like me, can see themselves in National Parks as well.
