Support Your Park

Supporting Noatak National Preserve is a different experience than in other places. For most people, Alaska is far away. To actually put your feet on the ground in the preserve, you have to charter a 4-seater airplane to get there. However, rangers still need help from people who love their national parklands. Caring about and contributing to public lands is an American ideal. Here is how you can help from near or far.

Volunteer

There are many opportunities to support the work at Noatak National Preserve whether you live in the area or around the globe. See our volunteer page for more details.

Donate

You can make a gift to benefit the monument either directly to the National Park Service or through our cooperating association, Alaska Geographic. To make a gift directly to the National Park Service donation account, mail your check to the headquarters address.

Anyone can be a Jr. Ranger. Learning is the first step toward helping. Complete the activities in the Jr. Ranger book and mail them in. Not only will you be able to tell others what you learned about the parks in northwest Alaska, but you can also earn the Junior Ranger badge, saber toothed cat patch, and even a water bottle.

27 caribou, with tails held high, leave a gravel bar to splash and swim across a blue river on a fall day.

The Western Arctic caribou herd is comprised of about 370,000 caribou, making it North America’s largest. These “nomads of the north” travel through Noatak National Preserve twice a year during their long trek between southern wintering areas and northern calving grounds.
