Special Events at Wrangell-St. Elias

Periodically we have special events in the park. Please check at park visitor centers or follow our Facebook and/or Twitter pages for the latest announcements of these events.

Guest Lectures - We often host guest speakers in collaboration with partner organizations like Wrangell Institute for Science and Environment (WISE), Ahtna Heritage Foundation, or Wrangell Mountains Center.

Wings Over the Wrangells - every other year we host this event at the main park visitor center, which features live birds-of-prey and family activities. The next one is scheduled for 2016. We'll see you there!

Wilderness Act 50th Anniversary Digital Photo Contest - This contest was conducted in 2014, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. Click on the link to see the winning photograph!

Did you know that the National Park Service celebrates its CENTENNIAL in 2016? On August 25, 2016 the National Park Service turns 100 years old! Wrangell-St. Elias and all other national park units will be celebrating this achievement.
