For Educators


Education 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, 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).
