Play Agents of Discovery, the augmented reality mobile game that uses hints and clues from your surroundings to solve mysteries of nature!

Play our Agents of Discovery mission! The Mission takes place at the Beluga Slough Trail, which is located in Homer, Alaska. The trail starts at the Refuge Visitor Center. You will need to hike the trail to complete this mission.

To play Agents of Discovery, follow these instructions:


  • Download the Agents of Discovery app from the App Store or Google Play.
  • Make sure your mobile device's GPS is enabled.
  • Open the app. 
  • Login to your account, or create a new account if you are a new agent. You do not need an account to play, but you will need to create an account if you want to save a history of the missions you have completed.
  • Tap "Missions" at the home screen. The app automatically finds the missions that are closest to your location. If you are on the Kenai Peninsula or in Homer, Alaska, the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge mission will automatically appear at the top. If you don't see them, use the magnifying glass at the top of the page to search "Alaska Maritime".
  • Open the mission you wish to accept. Mission "challenges" are GPS-triggered. As you move along the mission route, your mobile device will alert you when you get near the location of the next challenge.
  • When a new challenge appears on your screen, tap to open it. You will learn fun facts about nature and wildlife, and then get a puzzle to solve.
  • Solve all the challenges to complete the mission!


 COVID-19 precautions: Have a fun and safe visit on the Beluga Slough Trail, but make sure you follow all social distancing guidelines when completing your missions!

Agents of Discovery missions can be found at refuges, parks, nature centers, and museums all over the United States and Canada! Look for them when you travel, or visit the Agents of Discovery website for a list.
