The Murie Science and Learning Center is your connection to research and discovery in Alaska's arctic and subarctic parks. The NPS partners with Alaska Geographic, Denali Education Center, and other organizations to offer science exhibits and education programs year-round. In the summer, the MSLC offers unique experiences as public presentations, half-day classes, multi-day seminars, teacher trainings, and youth camps. Visitors can learn about park science in the exhibit area and get current park information at the information desk.

As the park’s primary nonprofit education partner, Alaska Geographic connects people to Alaska’s magnificent wildlands through experiential education, award-winning books and maps, and by directly supporting the state’s parks, forests, and refuges. Over the past 50 years, Alaska Geographic has provided more than $20 million to fund educational and interpretive programs throughout Alaska’s public lands. It also supports education programs, scientific research, and science informed management decisions through the Murie Science and Learning Center. Alaska Geographic operates four bookstores in the park, including the main Denali Visitor Center campus, the Murie Science and Learning Center, the Toklat Rest Area, and the Talkeetna Ranger Station. A portion of every sale helps fund the park’s educational and interpretive programs.

Cold temperatures limit trees from growing at high elevation in Denali. Warmer temperatures, however, have led to woody vegetation growing at ever-higher elevations. Treeline changes are a conspicuous sign of climate change.
