This Nature Travel Program with the Audubon Naturalist Society features visits to Kenai Fjords National Park, Prince William Sound, Hatcher Pass, and Denali National Park.  Our group will visit a wide variety of habitats, including marine fjords, coastal and boreal forests, freshwater marshes and lakes, and the alpine tundra.  We will search for birds and other wildlife while enjoying spectacular scenery, learning many plants, and discussing the ecology and conservation. 

Mark Garland leads this trip along with Jordan Rutter.  Registrations are handled by the Audubon Naturalist Society, and the full itinerary is available from ANS; send an e-mail message to Carol Hayes, carol.hayes@ANShome.org, or call 301-652-9188 x10.  The trip is limited to 14 persons , and the cost is $3900 per person, double occupancy.  There has been a lot of interest in this trip and we expect it to fill quickly.

The trip starts in Anchorage, with a little time dedicated for visits to natural areas and museums in Alaska’s largest city.  We then head south, heading onto the water for 2 scenic wildlife boat trips, one out of Seward to visit Kenai Fjords National Park, and one out of Valdez to visit Prince William Sound.  We travel overland north to Denali, with time to explore a variety of natural areas along the way, and with a full day visit to Denali National Park scheduled.
