AUTUMN IN AK — Just like that, it’s fall in the Interior of Alaska. Classes have resumed at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. School children in the area have returned to their teachers and classrooms. Docent training has begun at the museum. We’ve even had our first frost.
We like this time of year. Soon school children will be filling the galleries, eyes shining as they explore the history, culture, and wildlife of Alaska. Our Family Day programs will begin soon.
And we’ll celebrate the harvest with a special exhibit. The UA Museum of the North is working with the Downtown Association of Fairbanks and the Co-op Market to bring this free exhibit to UAF’s Community and Technical College this fall.
Key Ingredients: America by Food was produced by the Smithsonian Institutions as part of the Museum on Main Street initiative. It is touring the state thanks to a grant from the Alaska Humanities Forum. We’re asking you to share your own harvest stories, recipes, photos, and more. Visit our website to find out how to get involved.
