Imagine the discoveries you will make as you explore Alaska’s natural world! The Bureau of Land Management Campbell Creek Science Center’s dynamic programs spark curiosity and build connections with nature for all learners. The Campbell Creek Science Center is located in Anchorage, Alaska and offers a perfect outdoor classroom where learning and science come to life. We offer outdoor education programs for children and adults.

The CCSC’s distance learning programs give K-12 students hands-on, minds-on experiences with the natural world through digital technology. Guided by skilled environmental educators, your students will interact with each other in fun, practical ways to investigate science and grow as a team.  

The CCSC’s online interpretive programs for adults, families, and children give you and your group the opportunity to explore the natural world through digital technology. Knowledgeable naturalists will help you discover Alaska’s geologic story, learn about the life under the snow, and more!

The BLM Campbell Creek Science Center engages all learners in outdoor experiences that increase appreciation, connection, and stewardship of Alaska’s public lands and natural resources. CILC access is generously provided by the Friends of Campbell Creek Science Center, a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the educational programs and initiatives of the Center and addressing unmet science education needs of Alaskans.

When booking, include notes about any special needs your students may have in the “additional information for content provider to know” section. 

Typically, the school will host CCSC on your school’s distance learning platform (e.g., Zoom, Teams, Hangouts) and a teacher serves as the group facilitator. Please let CCSC know if there are any questions or issues with this and we will adapt.
