- Anchorage's Urban Bears: USGS is a member of the Anchorage Bear Committee Education Group that was formed in 2008 to launch a collaborative educational effort focused on safe recreation in bear country in and around Anchorage. In April 2015 the Alaska Department of Fish and Game created the "Anchorage Urban Bear Story Map", an interactive application that allows you to observe the movements of collared bears and watch video clips recorded as the bears traveled throughout Anchorage. Learn more about living with bears.
- STEM Curriculum for High School Students using USGS Walrus Data: This curriculum introduces students to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) so they can construct a map and formulate a comprehensive mock management plan with the aim of protecting walrus habitat, foraging areas and migration routes in Alaska. In 2013, Wildlife Biologist Anthony Fischbach (Alaska Science Center) provided his expertise and walrus data to Scott Hauser, a Service High School teacher in Anchorage, Alaska so he could develop this curriculum for his students.
