“Human Geography: Putting Words in Their Place with Joanna Lilley” comes to Juneau on Monday, Dec. 3 at the Mother Kathleen Library at Holy Trinity, 415 Fourth St. The 49 Writers program examines the relationship between the poetry people write and where they live and how poetry helps people articulate their relationship with places. It is $39 for members or full-time students or $48 for general enrollment. There is a cap of 12 people.
Registration can be done at http://49writers.org/joanna-lilley-class.
There are now pet memberships for Juneau Arts & Humanities Council.

Trapping closures along Ketchikan trails lifted
KETCHIKAN — Forest Service trapping closures along Ketchikan area trails have been lifted.
Forest Supervisor Earl Stewart made the decision after review of feedback from the public meeting held on Oct.17, and after reviewing applicable law and Forest Service policy, according to a press release from the Forest Service. The temporary, emergency closure prohibited trapping within 150 feet of trails and campgrounds along the Ketchikan road system. This emergency closure was intended to be temporary.
