Planet and Bird Walk at Twin Lakes

The Marie Drake Planetarium, in partnership with the Juneau Audubon Society, is bringing back the Planet Walk which graced the path along Twin Lakes for many years.  The new project will be finished in 2024.  It will include signs for the Sun and the eight planets in our solar system, partnered with a corresponding bird which can be found at Twin Lakes. The walk will provide a free, fun, and educational experience for adults and children.

 What is a Planet Walk?

A planet walk scale model of the solar system is designed to fit within a designated distance.

 

It shows the relative distance between the planets.

Our planet walk will be unique in being combined with a bird walk.
