In The Community

Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge has a large and ever increasing presence in the Kodiak community, with the 2007 opening of Kodiak Refuge Visitor Center in downtown Kodiak. This facility is open year-round to the public and is the crossroads of conservation and education for Kodiak Refuge and our conservation partners. 

Our Center offers fun and educational exhibits and programs, as well as travelling and other temporary exhibits, film festivals and artist receptions - all free and open to the public. A feature of the Center is our award-winning 12-minute orientation film, available for screening on-demand, and the re-articulated Gray whale skeleton. The Center also offers a downtown meeting space for local conservation-oriented organizations.
