Denali National Park: SCIENCE OF SLED DOGS 
Denali sled dogs are specially adapted to survive and thrive in the subarctic. They are not wild animals, but they are not house pets either. Sled dogs and rangers are a team that work together. Join us as we explore the adaptations that make Denali's sled dogs well-suited to living and working in subarctic winter conditions through an interactive lesson with park rangers from Denali National Park. This program is designed for children in grades 3–5, but all are welcome.

NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.

Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas.
