Every summer since 1990, local children have enjoyed guided explorations of the forests, fields, ponds and
other wetlands at Creamer's Field during Camp Habitat. Through sensory exploration, discovery hikes,
ecology-themed games, songs and creative craft projects, and growing food in the Creamer's Garden,
campers learn about the ecosystems of interior Alaska and discover what makes where they live special!
