At the head of Portage Valley, fifty miles south of Anchorage, at the end of scenic Turnagain Arm, lies the Begich, Boggs Visitor Center. You are invited to come experience it, as living glaciers continue to carve the landscape and shape the life on the Chugach National Forest. Built on the remnants of a terminal moraine left by Portage Glacier, the Visitor Center is staffed with Forest Service interpreters available to answer questions, assist with trip planning, and provide programs on the historical and natural wonders of the valley. Summer hours start on the weekend of May 25th and end on approximately the 1st of October. Call 783-3242 (GRD) or 783-2326 (BBVC) for the current hours of operation.
