Denali Days -- Ranger Visit to Your Classroom
A park ranger will visit your K - 6 class to teach students about the biological or physical sciences relevant to Denali. Programs are typically one-hour in length, during the fall and spring, and we strive to coordinate delivering multiple programs across several grades at one school, during one day.
These programs are offered to the following local Alaskan communities: Anderson, Cantwell, Healy, Nenana, Nikolai, McGrath, Talkeetna, Tanana, Trapper Creek, and Willow. Homeschooled students from these communities as well as preschool groups may also be eligible.

Did You Know?
Warmer temperatures have led to dramatic thawing of permafrost. Thaw releases carbon, as once-frozen materials decompose, but allows increased plant growth. Researchers in Denali are studying whether thawing permafrost will increase or decrease world-wide carbon emissions.
