Learning about wildlife is the first step in protecting it, and at our free Wildlife Wednesday presentations you’re sure to learn something new! These free events start with a short presentation from a wildlife expert and are followed by a period of Q & A. Every Wednesday features a different wildlife topic, so there’s always something for everyone! Currently, we host Wildlife Wednesdays in Anchorage and Juneau.
