Two non-profit organizations provide support to Denali National Park and Preserve: Alaska Geographic and the Denali Education Center. In addition, the Denali National Park Aircraft Overflights Advisory Council advises the superintendent, through the Secretary of the Interior, on mitigation efforts to reduce the impacts from aircraft overflights in the park.
Alaska Geographic and the National Park Service are partners in providing the public with quality interpretive materials and programs. Alaska Geographic is dedicated to enhancing the public's understanding and conservation of Alaska's natural, cultural, and historical resources. Alaska Geographic operates the bookstores in the park visitor centers. Revenues from sales are donated to the park's educational programs. Included among Alaska Geographic's publications is the Denali Alpenglow.
Additional resources for park partners or anyone who works with the public in and around Denali are available.
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.
