Denali Citizen Council 50th Anniversary Celebration

For 50 years the Denali Citizens Council has been working to promote the natural integrity of Denali National Park and Preserve by supporting the ecological and wilderness values for which the Park and Preserve was established. Over the years we have been an integral part of making Denali National Park what it is, and will continue to help guide it into the future.

To celebrate this milestone we are inviting our members, as well as the public to help us mark the occasion with fun, food, music, and of course, education about the place we love and call home.

All events are free of charge, with the exception of the Sunday, Goodbye Brunch. Attendees responsible for cost of brunch.

Below is a schedule of events for our 50th Anniversary Celebration. We hope you join us!
