Park Ranger Programs

Note: Ranger programs in Denali are mainly offered only in the summer, from May 20 through the middle of September.

Whether you seek a short interaction or plan to fill multiple days attending these programs, park rangers are here to help you understand, appreciate and take care of your park.

With the exception of Discovery Hikes and the Kantishna Experience Tour, all ranger hikes, sled dog demonstrations, campground programs and other talks in Denali are free and do not require you to sign up in advance. Discovery Hikes are technically free, but will likely require you to purchase a bus ticket and you must sign up for them in advance.
 
 

American Sign Language

Our goal is to provide American Sign Language interpretation, when requested, for all ranger programs. Denali is very remote, however, so please request ASL interpretation as early as you can to ensure that we can accommodate your request!

Other Naturalist and Education Programs

Our partner non-profit association, Alaska Geographic, also offers a variety of programs for visitors. Other than field courses, these programs occur at the Murie Science and Learning Center.

  • Evening speaker series - 7 pm science presentations, multiple evenings per week from late May through early September
  • Side of Science series - 12 pm lunchtime presentations or short films with a park science focus, daily from June through August
  • Field courses - Multi-day, hands-on field courses instructed by park scientists and talented educators, June through September
