Bike/Hike through the History of the Herbert Glacier

Poster.jpgJoin us as we follow the Herbert Glacier trail through a treasure trove of history from the rocks and plants to the human history that is all around.

Hike: 10:00 AM at the trailhead
Bike: 11:30 AM

Like many of the mountains in Juneau, the area around the Herbert Glacier contains gold and thus is riddled with mining claims. As the glacier continues its retreat more and more ground comes open and available to possible mining. Located within the urban boundary of Juneau, this area would be directly impacted by the proposed changes to the mining ordinance. 

Come learn about the past, present, and future of Herbert Glacier and what mining in Juneau means.

If you would like directions to the trailhead please go here.
