While reading this book, students will explore the scientific research underway at the Gates of the Arctic National Park. With no roads, businesses, trails, or campgrounds, this park offers scientists the opportunity to fly, hike, and raft to remote locations to study the animals and ancient lands.

The Natural Laboratory: Scientists in National Parks series takes a look at the research and responsibilities of scientists working in U.S. national parks. Each 7.5" x 10" photo-filled book explores the topography of the park, its natural resources, the specific projects that have been undertaken there and why these projects are significant. Each 48-page book in the series also features quotes from scientists working in the featured park, to better explain to readers how and why things are done
