Wrangell Mountains Center
Based in McCarthy, Alaska, at the heart of the nation's largest National Park and just minutes from the toe of the Kennicott Glacier, the private nonprofit Wrangell Mountains Center connects people with wildlands through art, science, and education in the Wrangell Mountains. Meeting the needs of students, writers, artists, scientists, travelers and local citizens, we offer opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to explore, express, and be transformed through direct experience with this extraordinary place.
The Wrangell Mountains Center provides residential and walk-in experiential education programs that foster discovery through direct contact with diverse environments. We embrace an interdisciplinary approach composed of analytical, artistic, and scientific modes of perception. We value wilderness both for its own sake and for the powerful direct experience it offers us.
