About Alaska Park Science
Alaska Park Science is a semi-annual journal that shares what we are learning in Alaska's national parks through the study of their vital cultural and natural resources. Some of the best places in the country have been chosen as parks. These places are landscapes and historic shrines in which we feel wonder, reverence, respect - and responsibility. We are immmensely proud that such places exist and that we are successfully preserving this natural and cultural heritage for future generations.
Sharing these ideas and what we have learned in our resource studies is essential. The National Park Service strives to connect education with research and science, for education can serve as the bridge between knowledge and responsibility to manage them.
As part of our "contract with the future," Alaska Park Science can connect the public with their national parks and the natural and cultural resources found there. Alaska's national parks serve to teach, inform, inspire and motivate people. In the end, we hope the national parks will inspire and encourage people to make a difference.
