Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.
Explore the Boreal forest and create a souvenir of your time in the Copper River Valley. No artistic skill or experience is needed to participate on this sensory exploration. Join a local naturalist guide for a walk along local trails near the Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge and explore the many faces of the boreal forest landscape and learn about wildflowers, trees, and other plants, and their traditional stories and uses. You will receive a sketchbook and art materials. Your small group will stop for quick sketches and a "soundscape" exercise which captures the feelings and sounds of the forest and river. Next, go indoors and complete a watercolor project depicting the Aspen forest, using simple techniques suitable for ages and levels of artistic experience. The finished painting and sketchbook become souvenirs of time spent in the boreal forest of Interior Alaska.
Special Notes:Dress in warm layers. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Tour suitable for all ages. No artistic skill or experience needed. Tour operates on the property of the Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge.
