Provide science and environmental education to all age groups, resources for learning, and support for scientific research.



Share the natural world of the Copper River Basin, provide scientific and environmental education along with research services, and instill a sense of awe, connectedness, and sacred feeling for the place we live.



Provide: Sense of Place

Cultivate observation skills, understanding, and sensitivity to our biotic and climatic environment. Nurture connections with place both personally and emotionally; and build understanding for how place is influenced by humans.


Develop: Interconnections

Develop an understanding of how things are interconnected, how ecosystems function, and the cause and effect of human actions on natural systems.


Instill: Stewardship

Identify ways people can make a difference; take a personal responsibility to sustain our natural and human communities; and inspire stewardship.
