DENALI PARK, Alaska: This summer's Murie Science and Learning Center field-based, active learning courses are now available for registration. These unique, in depth experiences appeal to a wide range of interests as they immerse participants into aspects of Denali National Park and Preserve. Courses are three to five days in length.

Seminar topics include birds, storytelling, wolf studies, archaeology, glaciers, wildflowers, and landscape painting. Teacher trainings include geology, climate change, and an exploration of student learning styles. Professional development credit is available for all courses.A complete list of classes and registration is available at www.murieslc.org and www.alaskageographic.org or by calling 907-683-6432. The courses are coordinated by Alaska Geographic, a non-profit partner of the National Park Service.

Most seminars and trainings are based out of the Murie Science and Learning Center Field Camp, located 29 miles inside Denali National Park along the Teklanika River. Participants set out daily from this spectacular location to explore the park's diverse environments. The Field Camp includes rustic tent cabins and a common dining tent.

The Murie Science and Learning Center (MSLC), hosted at Denali National Park and Preserve, consists of many partnerships focused on increasing the effectiveness and communication of science in the national parks. The MSLC provides research, discovery, and learning opportunities within arctic and subarctic National Parks to promote appreciation and caring for our natural and cultural heritage. These courses are just one of the MSLC's many services.
