Capture your own impressions of Exit Glacier with an Art for Parks backpack.

The Art for Parks program has ventured in to the outdoors! Backpacks filled with art supplies can be checked out for free from the Exit Glacier Nature Center during the summer months. Art for Parks is a perfect activity for the whole family or for anyone wanting to explore their creative spirit in Kenai Fjords National Park. You can share a photograph of your artwork to be featured on the park website. Just ask a ranger for an artwork release form when you return the backpack.
