Arctic Ranger Perspectives

Hello from the Arctic Circle! Kobuk Valley National Park, Noatak National Preserve, and Cape Krusenstern National Monument are collectively known as Western Arctic National Parklands. Our remote location requires a plane ride, as there is no road access! This often makes it difficult for visitors to interact with our Park Rangers. Arctic Ranger Perspectives brings our staff to YOU! Visit with us virtually and learn more about what it is like being a ranger way up north!
