JUNEAU, Alaska, Feb. 13, 2018 – The U.S. Forest Service announces the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center Fireside Chat on February 16, 2018 will be about moose in Juneau.

Did you see a moose in Juneau last summer? A bull moose visited the Mendenhall Glacier last summer. Join us at the Visitor Center as Kevin White, ADF&G wildlife biologist, explains how it got here.

The Friday night Fireside Lecture begins at 6:30 p.m. and repeats at 8 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Fireside Lectures and Visitor Center entrance are free of charge in the winter. Winter hours are Fridays, Saturday, and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
