About This Teacher Training
Murie Science & Learning Center Teachers Trainings explore the vast ecosystems and vibrant cultures of the Far North. Classes are small, but the classrooms are grand – set in Denali National Park’s landscape of taiga forest, glacier-clad mountains, and wide-open tundra. The Murie Science and Learning Center is a new facility dedicated to research and education about America’s eight northernmost National Parks. The Center, developed by the National Park Service, is a collaborative effort of several education and research organizations.
What To Expect
This course is based out of the Murie Science and Learning Center Field Camp, located 35 miles inside Denali National Park in the area of Igloo Canyon. Just below Sable Pass, Igloo Canyon is where the taiga forest gives way to subarctic tundra. From this spectacular location we’ll set out each day to explore Denali’s diverse environments.
The Field Camp includes rustic tent cabins and a common dining tent. All meals, accommodations, transportation, and instruction are included. Family-style meals are simple and healthy. Each tent cabin sleeps four people on platform beds with mattresses. Participants bring their own sleeping bag and pillow case.
This course starts at the Murie Science and Learning Center at the Park entrance. To allow for travel time to Denali, this course begins at 2:30 p.m. on the first day and ends at 4:00 p.m. on the last day.
Programs are limited to 10 participants.
