Wedgewood Wildlife Sanctuary at the Wedgewood Resort features walking trails that wind through a 75 acre Boreal forest and around Wander Lake, a model wetlands reclamation project. The trails are suitable for wheelchairs and strollers and have plenty of benches along the path to stop and watch for wildlife. More than 120 species of birds, 15 different mammals and numerous fish have been recorded in the sanctuary.  Interpretive signs located along the trails explain how the Boreal forest’s flora and fauna have adapted to Alaska’s extreme climate.

This private sanctuary is adjacent to Creamer’s Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge. Trailheads are located near Laurel Building and the Alaska Bird Observatory at Wedgewood Resort. No entrance fee. Dogs and fishing are prohibited.
