Stop by to visit us and learn more about Kodiak wildlife and ecosystems in our exhibit hall, be amazed by the complete skeleton of a 36 foot Gray Whale, or catch a summer interpretive talk by our park rangers. Maps and pamphlets, including an island Bird List, are available at the information desk, and we also have an award-winning 12 minute film about the refuge available for screening on demand.

Our partner bookstore, Alaska Geographic, offers natural history-themed books, cards, gifts and educational curios. Memberships to Alaska Geographic are available at the Visitor Center, and a portion of all sales directly support Refuge education and outreach programs. If you want to know more about Alaska Geographic, please contact the Kodiak Branch Manager, 907-487-0284.

The Visitor Center hosts regular public talks and evening programs that feature current and on-going wildlife research projects from across the archipelago. Please see our calendar for current events.
You can also view our summer program schedule here.

The Center also offers a downtown meeting space for local conservation-oriented organizations such as Audubon, Sustainable Kodiak and Whale Fest.
