I just did the free stuff. Everyone was very nice, but the "free" area was quite small.

We went here in March, so there were no tours being given. We did, however, see the musk ox. They are fascinating animals, and worth the trip out there to see. Really amazing.

Right from your car you can see the newly born caribou calves in April. We check daily.

Even though these awesome animals were behind two sets of chain link fence, it was amazing to see them (less than100 feet away from us). They are free to roam a large natural area, but the fence protects them from predators. We got wondeful pix of them!

It is informative, and great, something you won't normally see - is lots of fun, do put on your list of stops while in Fairbanks
