Guided Nature Walks

Starting in early June and running until August 30, Local Volunteer Naturalists will provide free guided nature walks at 10:00 AM on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.  Learn about the history of the Creamer family, the former Creamer's Dairy, and the ecology of Creamer’s Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge. Meet your walk leader outside the Farmhouse Visitor Center.  The walks are typically 1 hour in length.

To schedule private guided walks for small groups (20 or less), call us at (907) 978-8457 or email for times and availability.

Be prepared before your tour! Please dress appropriately for Alaskan summertime conditions! Preparations include:

  • Outdoor footwear for walking on uneven or muddy trails
  • Rain jacket or poncho for unexpected weather and temperature changes
  • Sunscreen, hat, or sunglasses
  • Bug spray*

*The mosquito is known as Alaska’s “state bird” for a reason and is a part of summertime life. With mild temperatures, regular precipitation, and many wetlands, lakes, and rivers, the Fairbanks area is well-suited for these pesky insects.

We’re lucky to have naturalists from Adventure Borealis participating in leading some of our nature walks here on the refuge this summer! Adventure Borealis is a program of the Northern Alaska Environmental Center.
