Professional development credit is available for all courses.A complete list of classes and registration is available at www.murieslc.organd or by calling 907-683-6432. The courses are coordinated through the Murie Science and Learning Center by Alaska Geographic, a non-profit partner of the National Park Service.

Most courses are based out of the Murie Science and Learning Center Field Camp, located 29 miles inside Denali National Park along the Teklanika River. From this spectacular location participants explore the park's diverse environments. The Field Camp includes rustic tent cabins and a common dining tent.

The Murie Science and Learning Center (M SLC), hosted at Denali National Park and Preserve, consists of many partnerships focused on increasing the effectiveness and communication of science in the national parks. The MSLC provides research, discovery, and learning opportunities within arctic and subarctic National Parks to promote appreciation and caring for our natural and cultural heritage. These Alaska Geographic courses are just one of the MSLC's many services.
