Outdoor Safety & Ethics

People are drawn to Alaska’s outdoors – the scenic beauty, the opportunities for recreation and learning, the chance to see what they seldom see in other places - things like the Northern lights, glaciers, abundant and varied kinds of wildlife.

Alaska’s rugged terrain and harsh weather conditions can present significant challenges.  One of the primary goals of any outdoor experience is to come back alive and well, so it is important to pay attention to safety.  A second goal is to protect the resources that make Alaska so special.
