Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We at the Alaska Public Lands Information Center in Anchorage feel that we have excellent opportunities for you to make a difference while enjoying the outdoors in Alaska. Anchorage,the largest northern most city in the world, has a ideal combination of urban and nearby wilderness. City parks and coastal trails are within walking distance of downtown Anchorage. Fishing, hiking, and other recreational adventures lie within 20 or 30-minutes driving time or a 10-minute floatplane flight from the city.
