IHLC’s actions help fulfill the borough’s founding commitment to its Iñupiaq heritage and to protect cultural and subsistence resources for all residents of the North Slope.

Build a Wood Duck Nest Box
Nest boxes should be constructed of a weather-resistant wood; cedar or cypress is often recommended. The wood can be painted, stained, or treated, but only on the outside surface. The entrance hole should have a 4-inch diameter or be an oval that is 3 inches high and 4 inches wide.

MarcoPolo: Internet Content for the Classroom
The mission of the MarcoPolo program is to create premier, standards-based Internet Content and provide the requisite professional development to every teacher in the United States, and to maintain the program in a way that allows it to scale throughout the United States and be sustainable over time, so it may enrich teaching and dramatically affect student achievement for generations to come.
