Elaine Furbish

Elaine Furbish came to Skagway, Alaska in 1999 and was employed by Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park as their second Natural Resources Manager, a position she held until 2001. During her tenure with the park, Elaine conducted baseline natural resource surveys of parklands, as well as started a study of lichen as indicators of air pollution. Elaine vacated the position when it was subsumed under a general Resources Manager who was an individual with whom Elaine did not see eye to eye. Elaine has continued to live in Skagway and as a trained scientist remains a keen observer of the natural world and is involved with the local bird club and community environmental monitoring projects.
