WHAT:

Travel Channel Story Editor, Meredith Fowke, and Production Manager, Gloria Straccini, recently contacted the Klamath Tribes to let us know they are filming a series across the nation called “National Parks: Legends, Secrets and their History.”  Crater Lake National Park is one of the many locations they will be filming on their journey across the country.  The series will showcase legends and mysteries that occur in and around national parks. Upon learning Crater Lake sits within the former reservation lands of the Klamath Tribes, they contacted the tribe and would like to visit with tribal members about their knowledge/history of this sacred place.
