We are Educational Retail Stores

Our 30 stores in visitor centers across Alaska are education gateways to Alaska’s parks, forests, and refuges. We offer the best books, trail guides, maps, and unique local gifts to better understand and remember the awe-inspiring places you visit. Visit our online store for pre-trip planning and post trip memories. Revenue from our store sales is returned to the public lands to support education programs, stewardship projects, and youth programs.
