Denali Education Center Road Scholars walk the McKinley Station Trail in Denali National Park and Preserve on Aug. 31, 2012. The group was on their way to photograph the train tressel and Riley Creek in Denali’s front country. Photo by participant Dave Pierce.

Denali National Park was established in 1917, this 6 million-acre wilderness is home to 20,320 foot Mount McKinley, and wildlife such as moose, caribou, Dall sheep and grizzly bear, and is considered one of the most intact sub-arctic ecosystems in the world.

The Denali Education Center campus was built in 1990 along the eastern boundary of Denali National Park, on the banks of the Nenana River. This quiet wooded campus, consisting of 12 cabins and Riverside Hall, was the first in the U.S. built exclusively for Road Scholar programs.
