Each summer the Murie Science and Learning Center becomes a springboard for unique and intimate park experiences in Denali. These multi-day field courses are coordinated by Alaska Geographic and led by distinguished scientists, authors and naturalists. The courses and workshops bring participants into the field for an 'up-close and personal,' behind-the-scenes exploration of our park lands. Most courses are based at the rustic MSLC field camp on the Teklanika River. When noted, some courses are operated by other park partners. Please visit the Alaska Geographic field course page for more information and to register.

Some of the field courses are designed specifically for teachers, and teacher scholarships are available annually. Scholarship applications are usually due in late January.
