Consider presenting your own knowledge and great ideas, nominating a keynote speaker, asking for travel support from your District, and, most of all, enjoying a crisp fall day in the Interior with other dedicated teachers.


Alaska is the perfect place for outdoor learning for children and adults. We can all learn about the intricate connections between organisms, including ourselves, and about how history is preserved through human artifacts. We can see the mark that natural forces leave on the land and watch as they exert their power right in front of us. Here are some of the organizations that provide such experiences.
