Girl scouts helped with trail projects at the Nature Center to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Historic Iditarod Trail. Some of the youngest girls helped create a natural play area below the Iditarod Trail near the Nature Center. Check out their stepping "stones" made of tree rounds. Thank you to the Girl Scouts of Alaska!
Volunteers from Joy Lutheran Church in Eagle River helped our "regular" trail volunteers out on July 29, 2018.
Many thanks for all your help in maintaining the trails as best we can for all to enjoy.
Beginning January 18, 2018 our public use cabin and yurt rates are increasing from $70 to $75. Why? Our expenses have gone up each year (utilities,
insurances, and all the other costs associated with being open to the public year round) and we need to find ways to bridge the gap. Good news
is that if you're a member of the Nature Center a night at the cabin or yurts will remain the same - $60.
This year's Historic Roadhouse Day on January 13th had a wonderful lineup of speakers including author and historian Lee Jordan, volunteers from the Historic Iditarod Trail Alliance and the Allgood Family Band. Thank you to all our volunteers and volunteer presenters for taking part in this cultural event.Read More
