One of our biggest challenges is finding a way to share the Kobuk Valley experience with those who do not have the opportunity to visit the park in person. We have created a Flickr website as a way to extend the virtual park boundary to encompass all those who love and support our national parks, wherever they may be. Any visitor who would like to volunteer a sample of a trip to Kobuk Valley National Park is encouraged to visit our Flickr site to post photos, video clips and journal entries to share with others.

Image of a tiny wood frog with a black eye stripe is dwarfed by the palm of the person's hand on which it sits.

A frog that lives in Kobuk Valley National Park spends the winter as an ice cube. In the fall, the Wood Frog burrows under leaves on the forest floor. Its temperature drops to 20° F or lower until spring, at which point it thaws out and goes on its way.
