Ranger Programs at the Discovery Center

The Southeast Alaska Discovery Center offers a variety of ranger-led interpretive programs during the summer months. 

Ranger Talks & Walks

Join a ranger at the big Alaska map in the visitor center lobby to explore topics related to Southeast Alaska's unique natural beauty and vibrant cultural heritage. Look at our weekly program schedule (Sept 6-12).

Junior Ranger Corner

In the Junior Ranger Corner, get up close and personal with skins and skulls of rainforest critters, and let a ranger show you how the web of life sustains healthy forests, wildlife and people in Southeast Alaska.

Kids from 3 to 93 can become Tongass Junior Rangers at the Southeast Alaska Discovery Center, and our friendly rangers are available to help you earn a badge of your very own. Or go on a scavenger hunt and win a special prize!
