A wide variety of summer classes designed to immerse participants in different aspects of Denali National Park and Preserve’s cultural and natural history and provide an in-depth park experience are now available for registration with the Murie Science and Learning Center. The classes are small (no more than twelve participants), but the classroom is grand – the mountains, tundra and forest of Denali National Park and Preserve!

The seminars and trainings are for participants of all ages, and some are designed specifically for families. Offerings include seminars on birds, mammals, wildflowers, field journal writing, fly fishing, and geology, and teacher trainings on wolves, dinosaurs, using iMovie in the classroom, and science writing. Professional development credit is available for both seminars and teacher trainings through the University of Alaska Anchorage.

A complete list of the seminars and trainings and registration is available at or by calling (888) 683-1269 or (907) 683-1269.

Most courses are based out of the Murie Science and Learning Center Field Camp, located 30 miles inside Denali National Park along the Teklanika River. From this spectacular location participants set out daily to explore Denali's diverse environments. The Field Camp includes rustic tent cabins and a common dining tent. All meals, accommodations, transportation, and instruction are included.

The Murie Science and Learning Center is a collaboration of the National Park Service with several park partners, including the Alaska Natural History Institutes, Denali Education Center, Denali Borough School District, Doyon/ARAMARK Joint Venture and the University of Alaska. The Murie Science and Learning Center promotes scientific research to aid park managers and provides science-based education programs and information to students, educational institutions and the visiting public.
