What's it like to live and work in a national park in Alaska? We will show a brief overview of Denali National Park and Preserve before engaging in an informal question and answer session with your K-12 class. Some of our favorite topics to chat with students about include the natural history (biology, ecology, geology, etc.) and cultural history of Denali, life in rural Alaska, careers in the National Park Service, and differences and similarities between life in the subarctic and life at home.
