Eagle River Nature Center, Anchorage Reviews - Write a Review

  • A great place for kids! They have a touch center where you can put "hands on" pelts, different species of wood, skulls, paw prints, and antlers. There are lakes, rivers, trails, and plenty of fauna and flora more to see. They can explore, roam and learn here. This is what fall looks like at the Eagle River Nature Center.

  • Absolutely beautiful place to take a hike; it got everything: snow covered mountain, crystal clear streams and deep woods full of wild animals. Also the visitor center has some very interesting learning material, including bones, furs and introduction on animals of Alaska. Highly recommend it~

  • Beautiful place to take the family and has a great learning center and the staff are super friendly.

  • We went to participate in their Knee High Explorers program. It is a free group geared for Toddlers and Preschoolers. They, plus their adult, get a guided walk with a theme for the week. Our guide stopped to identify several types of trees and tracks for us. We stopped at the yurt and played a quick match game (footprints to their animal), then went on to two look out points and a hollow tree. The trails were a bit icy in spots. They can't do much about that, but they did let us know it would be as well as offer loaner grips for shoes. The guide walked a little fast for a group of kids this age, as a result a second group sort of formed made up of some of the slower kids. The walk/tour is free. Parking is $5 per visit or $50 for a one year pass.
