Registration for Alaska Geographic seminars, teacher trainings now open

Alaska Geographic, the Murie Science and Learning Center, and their partners invite the public and educators to explore Alaska’s wild places through 25 hands-on field courses.


Field seminars are open to all participants, while teacher trainings are designed specifically for teachers.  Professional development credit is available for all courses through the University of Alaska.

These multi-day award-winning courses explore Alaska’s legendary national parks, forests, and refuges – offered in partnership with the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S. Forest Service. Courses in Denali National Park and Preserve are offered through the Murie Science and Learning Center.

The field seminars range from topics on wolves and Dall sheep to paleontology and wildlife tracking. There are 17 total field seminars. Teacher trainings, eight in all, touch on the bears of Admiralty Island, exploring Prince William Sound and climate change, to name a few.

Alaska Geographic is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides education programs statewide in partnership with public land agencies and other organizations throughout Alaska.
