Park ranger in classroom with two students in insect costumes

First graders in Selawik, Alaska, are truly into insects with the park ranger.

A park ranger is available to visit your Pre K - 12th grade classroom if you are a teacher with the Northwest Arctic School District. You may choose a program from a list of potential topics or contact the Education Specialist for details and specific requests.

Teachers in Kotzebue may schedule programs throughout the school year. The park ranger will visit each of the surrounding villages once for up to a week during the school year. Village visits are scheduled during district in-service at the beginning of the school year.

Schools in other locations are welcome to contact the Education Specialist to schedule a question-and-answer session with a park ranger via telephone or video chat.

While hunting is not usually associated with national parks, local area residents are allowed to hunt and trap in Kobuk Valley National Park. The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act allows for continued subsistence harvest in this and all Alaska park units established in 1980.
