Alaska: Biomes of the North

Offered by: Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve
Program Description:
The National Park Service protects millions of acres of public lands in northern Alaska. These lands are part of the tundra and boreal forest (taiga) biomes. In this program, students will learn about these biomes with examples from two wild, remote national park units: Gates of the Arctic and Yukon-Charley Rivers. A National Park Service Ranger will present an overview of non-living factors that influence these extreme biomes and the living things that call them home.
