About Our Name WISE is a nonprofit organization founded in 2002 with the mission of providing science and environmental education for Alaska's Copper River Valley. Our full name, Wrangell Institute for Science and Environment, references the nearby Wrangell Mountains, a symbol of the place we serve. Science, Environment, and the word Institute were included to show our educational focus. The happy combination of letters giving the acronym "WISE" was a positive factor in the final selection of the name. WISE has no connection or affiliation with the former BIA school known as Wrangell Institute.
