Connecting Youth to Alaska's Wildlands

Chugach Children's Forest

Alaska Geographic partners with school districts to encourage outdoor learning through teacher workshops and field trip support. Thanks to partnerships like the Chugach School District and the Chugach National Forest, hundreds of Alaskan youth play in, learn from, and care for our beautiful parks, forests, and refuges. Kayak-based stewardship expeditions and a boat-based research expeditions bring together enthusiastic and dedicated teens from around Prince William Sound for 10-day trips that included wilderness skills, restoration projects, and comradery. Unique to our programs, expedition alums are invited into ongoing mentorship programs that encourage leadership and further outdoor experiences.

Educating People Through Interpretive Products

Thoughtful consideration goes into everything we sell in Alaska Geographic stores, from fascinating books, films, and gifts that reflect our partners’ important interpretive messages to fun products featuring our bear/raven logo, a symbol of the natural accord between humans and nature. Each item has a purpose: to educate and inspire visitors and Alaskans alike to develop a lasting connection and commitment to our beautiful public lands.

Thank you to our generous supporters!
