StreamWalk Interpretive Plan

We are moving forward on our Pullen Creek StreamWalk Project! One major piece of this project is the Interpretive Plan. This is, after all, an interpretive trail.

Corvus Design continues to work with us for our construction design and now interpretive design needs. Chris Mertl and Laura Minski of Corvus will be in Skagway January 8th and 9th to begin the process of gathering content for our Interpretive Plan.

The interpretive plan will outline the content for each of the 23 signs, which includes signs designed specifically for children.

Join us to help tell the story of Skagway’s natural and cultural history by discussing with our designers your favorite facts about Skagway.

Where: Skagway Public Library

Date: Thursday, January 8th

Time: 6PM
