The Center is dedicated to the preservation of Alaska’s wildlife through conservation, education, and quality animal care. AWCC takes in injured and orphaned animals from the wild in conjunction with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. When possible, the Center will release animals back into the wild, and when necessary, works with similar facilities in the United States and abroad to place these animals in lifetime homes. The Center cares for brown and black bears, moose, caribou, elk, musk ox, lynx, and the herd of 135 endangered wood bison. AWCC is the best way for visitors to get an up close view of Alaska’s wildlife in a natural setting. « less

Nestled in a very beautiful mountain setting, Crow Creek Mine offers the oldest buildings in the Anchorage area, 1898, as well as some of the most popular recreational Gold Mining in all of Alaska. You will find everyone from your first time miner just hoping for a few flecks, up to actual gold miners who have been working these grounds on a very serious level. For those not intersted in the panning or sluicing experience, the property is very scenic for pictures and is a very popular wedding destination, it is even fun to just sit and watch some of the more experienced crews of miners as they work. While most visitors coming in for sightseeing or panning don't need reservations, we do offer private guided tours for those of you wanting a bit more out of your experience. Not only do you learn more about the property and gold in general, but the gold mining experience of our staff and knowledge of the property is always a big help in having a succesful outing!!! Feel free to contact us for any questions regarding our business or the Girdwood area in general. Girdwood makes for great day trips from anchorage and is on the way for anyone headed to Portage, Seward, Kenai, or Homer. Our road is a bit bumpy and unmaintained between October and May, but come June 1st every year the state does a great job of fixing it, you can always contact us for road conditions if concerned. Thanks for viewing our business, we look forward to meeting you soon, « less
