Sounds of Denali: Ring Tones
Just as many virtual or in-person visitors seek inspiration in the wild landscape of Denali, so too can inspiration and beauty be found in the wild soundscape of Denali. Scientists in the park study up to eight new locations each year, as part of an on-going study to document the natural, non-human sounds of Denali, and assess the incursion of human-caused sounds.

In 1908, Charles Sheldon – a hunter and naturalist – described in his journal the idea of a park that would allow visitors to enjoy the beauty he saw while visiting Alaska. In 1917 his vision became reality, with the creation of Mount McKinley National Park.
