Encounters: Whales in Our Waters
February 1 – July 21, 2013
Explore the variety of encounters we have with the whales in our own waters – from the frequently seen humpback and killer whales, to the rare beaked whale, historic beluga, and more. Featuring the newly completed Homer Community Gray Whale Skeleton Project, this exhibit also presents whale identification, biology, traditional knowledge, and conservation issues surrounding cetaceans.
This exhibit is supported in part by Alaska State Council on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, City of Homer, The Skaggs Foundation, Apache, The Jenson Fund, The Daisy Lee Bitter Marine and Coastal Education Fund, and Donor-advised funds from the Homer Foundation
