Today at 3 on A Juneau Afternoon, Pat Moore will host. We’ll hear an excerpt from the upcoming broadcast of the Mudrooms local live storytelling events by Linda Buckley; we’ll learn about the Juneau Shotokan Karate Do Club from Black Belt members Kathy Hocker, Stacey Poulson, and Doug Murray; and we’ll get a preview of tonight’s Fireside Lecture from Harry Tullis, the Lead Wilderness Ranger for the Admiralty National Monument. Two Juneau high school students who worked at the Pack Creek bear viewing facility on Admiralty Island last summer will show slides and movies of their experience at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center this evening.
