The Alaska Public Lands Information Centers provide lesson plans and curriculum guides to assist teachers and other community leaders in learning about Alaska's natural, cultural, and historical resources. These materials complement national and local standards in both content and competencies. Most curriculum materials are available as downloadable pdfs; some have web site components.
Each site also houses a library of curriculum authored by the other agencies that partner with the Centers. These materials are available for browsing and loan.
