2012 Special Events

On August 17 we celebrated National Public Lands Day with a volunteer litter pick up at Coldfoot. The visitor center participates in the Adopt-a-Highway program. Drivers featured on Ice Road Truckers helped promote a litter-free Dalton Highway and dedicated two new recycling bins at the visitor center. Carlile Transportation Systems hauled the bins to Coldfoot for free -- Thanks Carlile!!
