kids-on-the-fenceASI’s mission is to conserve Alaska’s boreal birds through ecological education and research.

We manage two long-term research projects based at Creamer’s Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge in Fairbanks, AK. Creamer’s Field was once the northernmost dairy in Alaska, and is now a state refuge managed for migratory birds. ASI maintains a small office in the Creamer’s Field Farmhouse. Please follow these links to our project pages for specific details.
