From continuing responsible participation in our outdoor traditions such as hunting, fishing, and trapping to helping create informed and active citizens through environmental literacy, educators of all types in a variety of settings, play a key role in promoting the conservation and sustainable uses of Alaska's fish, wildlife, and habitats. There is something for every type of educator here.
