Portage Valley Learning Center

Begich, Boggs Visitor Center opens for Memorial Day weekend

Bringing the outdoors to the classroom!

The Portage Valley Learning Center (PVLC) in the Begich, Boggs Visitor Center opened to the public in 2005. This multi-purpose classroom addition to the visitor center is used primarily for educational programs by the conservation education staff, but the space can also provide opportunities for special events and other uses.

Having a classroom in the natural setting of the Chugach allows for a true conservation education opportunity. Students have the ability to learn about the forest in the PVLC, as well as travel outdoors to experience the forest first hand!
