Join Alaskan Naturalists Leslie and George LaBar for a “Geology and Botany” Guided Nature Series at Kantishna Roadhouse

Lucky Hill LaBars 2Kantishna Roadhouse is pleased to present a series of 3-day events this summer with the “Forest & Rock People of Earth Link Jewelry,” Leslie and George LaBar. The LaBars are experienced naturalists who have spent many years exploring the interior of Alaska. They are lapidary artists, rock-hounds, and wild plant and outdoor instructors. The couple will host a program of guided walks and presentations on June 17-19, July 29-31 and August 26-28. Kantishna Roadhouse guests will have the opportunity to learn firsthand about wild plants found in Denali National Park, including their uses as food and natural remedies.

The LaBars will also share their experiences foraging and gathering rocks, crystals, and other raw materials throughout the wild lands of Alaska for their lapidary jewelry creation.  They will host an evening slide presentation featuring photographs of their seasonal activities, from gathering stones and crystals to foraging, fishing, hunting and teaching about Alaska’s natural resources.

If you are interested in getting an in-depth view of Alaskan geology, gemology and botany, we encourage you to make your reservations now for one of these three special programs hosted by the LaBars.

August 24, 2021 National Park Service Announcement
Denali Park Road Closed To All Traffic beyond Mile 42

Due to the unsafe conditions posed by landslide activity the Denali Park Road is closed. The Kantishna Roadhouse is closed for the season. The Kantishna Wilderness Tours bus tour is operating on very limited capacity for tours to Mile 42 through Sept 12.

The Kantishna Roadhouse is an “inholder” business and we must comply with the National Park Service. We are dismayed and saddened that we cannot keep our business open for the remainder of the 2021 season. And, as you can see, we have no choice but to cancel all overnight reservations beginning August 24th and through the end of the season. We will be sending you a cancellation notice and crediting you with a full refund.

Thank you for your understanding. I fully understand that you wanted to be at the Kantishna Roadhouse, rather than reading this and making other plans.

Best Regards,
Marie Monroe, General Manager
