GIS Day - November 21 - Get Involved!

We are on track to celebrate GIS Day on Friday, November 21 at AAPLIC in downtown Anchorage!

I am already receiving requests from teachers and I expect to soon have 150-200 excited students (grades 3-6) ready to join us for a two hour exploration of GIS and GPS. Our first time slot begins at 8:30 and our last time slot ends at 3:00.

We've got a busy day planned and we really need volunteers to help make this event run smoothly.  If you can spare the morning or afternoon or all day to join us and help out, please contact me at 644-3556 or via email at angie_southwould@nps.gov. Be sure to include when you're available and your preference for the areas in which you'd like to assist.

We are looking for volunteers to assist in the following roles:
  • Check-in Assistants
  • Welcome Assistants
  • GPS Activity Assistants
  • GIS Activity Assistants
  • Photographers
  • Runners
We are also on the lookout for student-friendly goodies to fill our geocaches.
