Our educators have a wealth of knowledge about Denali National Park and Preserve and great stories about living in Alaska. Tap into this engaging information through an informal question and answer session. Topics can cover the flora, fauna, glaciers, geology, biology, and cultural history of Denali, as well as life in rural Alaska, careers in the National Park Service, and more.
This program focuses on the dynamic geologic processes - subduction, uplift and erosion - that created North America's tallest mountain. Students investigate why Denali is so big, how it influences the weather, and whether glaciers are succeeding at making the mountain smaller.
Students explore the adaptations - behaviors, forms (anatomy) and functions (physiology) - that make Denali's sled dogs well-suited to living and working in subarctic winter conditions.
