Description

Volunteers would staff the NaPS visitor center and visit with the public about the resources of the 4 park units. They would also help run a small bookstore and do research for informational materials

Western Arctic National Parklands covers 11.8 million acres of northwest Alaskan wilderness.The native people are Inupiaq & Yupik Eskimos, and the countryside is wild and undeveloped. Kotzebue is located right on the Arctic Ocean on an old series of beach ridges inhabited by native people for thousands of years. The Innaigvik Education and Information Center, operated by NPS staff, is host to a mix of visitors. Some are from the local Inupiaq community, some are wilderness adventurers, some are hunters on guided trips and some are professional researchers and community services staff. Our goal is to help all of these groups understand the remote nature of these parks and the special relationship between the native culture and the resources.
