The goal of the Information and Education Program is to promote awareness, appreciation, and respect for our natural resources. We want to build relationships with people in our communities through school and youth programs and community events that foster communication and understanding of refuge area resources.

The Koyukuk/Nowitna Refuge Complex has a large number of resources in our reference library to help others teach about our environment — birds, mammals, wetlands, watersheds, and more! We have teaching kits, curriculum, books and videos, as well as a staff of experts that can visit and/or provide information to schools and communities. Follow the links below for more information!
