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.
Thank you Ann and Bob Fisher for an amazing 12 years volunteering for Friends of Eagle River Nature Center! Bob and Ann hiked over 1000 miles during these years, leading hikes throughout Chugach State Park. They were both active fundraisers for the organization; generous donors; maintained trails; and Bob served as a Board Director and
Finance Committee Chair (2002-2014). Kudos and Happy Trails from all your co-hikers, volunteers and staff.
It's PFD time, so please consider making a donation to Friends of Eagle River Nature Center when you apply. Thanks!
