The Alaska Public Lands Information Center located in downtown Anchorage is the best way to ensure you will get the most out of your Alaskan experience. Staffed by National Park Rangers, the center offers a plethora of information: from one-on-one trip planning assistance, to brochures and maps, to camping destinations, safety tricks, and so much more.

The Center is a year-round facility welcoming nearly 80,000 visitors, locals, and students a year. Located in Anchorage's historic Federal Building, the center hosts exhibits representing natural, historical, and cultural features throughout the state. Wandering among the exhibits, visitors get a mini-tour of Alaska. One can also learn about recreating on public lands in the state as well as materials for educators to bring back to their classrooms. The Anchorage Center has it all. 

"We initially visited to use the bathrooms but ended up staying for several hours... This is well worth a visit." -TripAdvisor review




 
A profile view of a striking canvasback duck swimming in grassy waters. The bird has a red head and neck, black chest and tail feathers and white wings. Did You Know?
The fertile lakes of the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge generally harbor over 50,000 canvasbacks, which is more than the rest of Alaska, combined.
