Formed in 1989, we are a non-profit educational partner of Denali National Park and Preserve. 

Through our partnership with the NPS and with the support of the community, we give visitors and Alaska residents of all ages the chance to form lasting connections to Denali and their natural world. We provide fun, informative, and inspiring programs that connect people to Denali. Through our multi-day learning vacations, day programs, youth programs, and special events we build lifelong friendships, create lasting memories, and foster a new generation of land stewards.

Our Mission

The mission of Denali Education Center is to promote understanding and appreciation of Denali through fun, informative, and inspiring programs. 

Our Vision

All who come to Denali enjoy a sense of connection to nature that they share with others.

Why Visit Alaska?

Alaska does a wonderful job of highlighting both Denali Education Center and many of the landscapes that we are able to share with the visitors that stay on our campus each summer. We hope this short film inspires you to get out and explore your national parks and wide-open spaces!
