Background

Alaskans have a wealth of knowledge about Denali National Park and Preserve, living in Alaska, and more. Tap into these stories of knowledge through an short presentation followed by an informal question and answer session that is available to groups of all ages. Topics can cover the flora, fauna, glaciers, geology, biology, and cultural history of Denali, as well as life in rural Alaska, careers in the National Park Service, and more. The education staff at Denali can visit your classroom for free via the internet. Using a Zoom videoconferencing connection, Denali becomes just a click away. Once connected, our staff will spend about 60 minutes teaching your class. Please contact the Denali education team if you have questions about other videoconferencing platforms.

Zoom conference runs ~ 60 minutes.
