From the Board President
"A healthy environment, prosperity, sustainability, national security and many other issues of great importance are interwoven in complex ways that too often get short shrift in our public dialogues. Northern Center staff, board, and members have been dedicated to pursuing these critical avenues of thought and action for the past forty years. With your continued support, we’re ready for the next forty."
~ Jon Miller

Since 1990, the Northern Alaska Environmental Center has been an active sponsor of Camp Habitat Summer Camps which are outdoor nature education and ecology camps for youth that take place at Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge. In 2006 the Northern Alaska Environmental Center partnered with the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District to bring the summer camp experience indoors as an after school program as part of the 21st Century Community Learning Center after school programs.
