The Denali Borough will be offering an optional tour on Friday, August 24th. If you plan to stay for this event, you will need stay Friday night as well.
Here are the details:
The Park Concessionaire (Doyon/Aramark JV) has generously donated buses and drivers for a full 8 hour trip to Eielson Visitor Center, which is located at Park Road milepost 66. The buses will pick up at the hotels Friday, August 24th at 8:30 am, with an expected return around 4:30 or 5 pm. All conference attendees plus significant others are invited. A snack lunch will be provided as well as drinking water. Attendees should feel free to bring any additional food and drink they may want, as there is only water available at Eielson. On that note, we are planning to provide all attendees with a reusable water bottle, which they can bring on the trip. Other items to pack will be a camera, binoculars and, of course, a jacket. Overhead storage racks are available on the buses for small backpacks and such.
Those who may remember the rickety old school buses traveling that beautiful route will be pleasantly surprised by the latest buses. And we will have the latest.

We’ll need a head count in advance, so please email rsvps to Sherry Shorey at sshorey@denaliborough.com.

Another fun filled event has been added.
There is an optional White Water Rafting Adventure on Tuesday, August 21, organized by the Alaska Municipal Management Association  (AMMA). Please note that there is an additional charge for this fun event! All Summer Conference delegates are invited. See attached flyer for the details! White Water Rafting
