ANCHORAGE - After two years of being closed, the visitor center in Portage has reopened.
The Begich, Boggs Visitor Center will be open weekends until the summer seasons begins May 23rd. The visitor center will be open this winter Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
No recreation fee is charged in the offseason to see the exhibits and the movie.
Lezlie Murray, visitor center director for Chugach National Forest, says it's nice to be open after two winters of being closed.
