Murie Science and Learning Center Logo
The Murie Science and Learning Center logo was developed by Alaska Geographic and inspired from the wolf skeleton exhibit built by middle-school students from the native village of Cantwell. The wolf skull logo encompasses many aspects of the MSLC; Adolph & Olaus Murie's research legacy, education outreach, traditional knowledge and sharing science with the public.
