Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center on the Alaska Highway
The Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center is located on the Alaska Highway, 15 miles north of the Port Alcan border. The center is a popular first stop for travelers entering Alaska because it is so close to the border. Visitors can enjoy a stunning vista from the centers viewing deck, which is equipped with telescopes so visitors can try to spot wildlife. There is a giant cache at the entrance of the visitor center that makes for a great photo op. The center has information about Athabascan culture and nesting swans. Exhibits also include a fish camp diorama, science on the refuge and a topographical map model.
