These Traveling Trunks can be checked out from the Fairbanks Alaska Public Lands Information Center located inside the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:30. Trunks may be checked out for a two week period and may be reserved up to three months in advance of checkout. A refundable deposit of $20.00 is required at the time of check-out. The deposit will be refunded upon return of the kits by 4:00 PM on the due date. Your presence is required during check-in.
At a rural school in Alaska? No problem! We will ship all of our kits to rural schools. Generally, FAPLIC pays the shipping one way and the school pays the return postage.
