For Educators

Allakaket_kindergarten2013Education efforts target people attending events in the Fairbanks area and in communities near refuge lands, visitors to the Arctic Interagency Visitor Center in Coldfoot, and visitors to the contact station in Bettles. 

Occasionally, community special events are held that highlight the refuge, the National Wildlife Refuge System, and/or particular environmental issues. In summer months, educational opportunities are provided primarily through the visitor center but throughout the year, refuge staff provide educational information at community meetings about various issues (e.g. subsistence, fire effects, regulations).  

 

Henshaw Creek Science Camp  

Henshaw Creek
In partnership with Tanana Chiefs Conference, Kanuti Refuge hosts a unique week-long camp offered to 6th-12th grade students from communities near the refuge. The camp is designed to bring western science and traditional knowledge together in an outdoor setting. The goal is to create a supportive learning environment where elders, students, and staff all gain more information and greater perspective of fisheries science, wildlife ecology, fish and game management, and traditional skills.    

 

Dragonfly Day

In partnership with a number of local, state, and non-profit organizations, Dragonfly Day is an annual all-day event held in Fairbanks, Alaska. The event features nature walks where children and adults are given aerial nets to catch and identify several species of dragonflies and damselflies found in the area. There are also numerous activities and crafts for all ages. It's a fun day for families to get outside and learn more about these insects.

 

The 5th annual Dragonfly Day takes place on June 28, 2014 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Swim Beach Pavilion at Chena Lake Recreation Area
