Welcome to the Eagle River Nature Center
The Eagle River Nature Center is operated by a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide connections to nature through interpretive education, resource protection and outdoor opportunities. The Nature Center is located within Chugach State Park – one of Alaska’s largest state parks and within 40 minutes driving distance from downtown Anchorage and 12 miles from the town of Eagle River.
Many thanks to our summer interns-docents April, Tilly, Colin, Louise and Ian (not pictured).
What You’ll Find at the End of Eagle River Road
You’ll discover the beauty of the Eagle River Valley as you begin your drive along Eagle River Road. Residential areas will give way to breathtaking views of glacially-carved mountains. At Mile 12 you will reach the log cabin visitor center – a threshold for connecting to the ever-changing landscape beyond.
