duranclan: Well it looks like this one wandered away. Since i am out of state and can't replace it I am archiving the cache. I hope that other cachers in the area can place a new one at this wonderful visitor center.. Thank you for posting DNFs so I knew it was MIA. Happy Caching everyone!

Geocache Description:

Just recently this new Visitor’s Center opened in Fairbanks. This location will be one of the main stops for visitors to Fairbanks and it needs a cache.

Just opened in the Fall of 2008, the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center will provide visitor information, exhibits, a theatre, an artisans' workshop and demonstration area, a cultural and environmental education classroom, and a store featuring educational materials and Alaska Native art.

The Center is home to the following partnering organizations:

* Alaska Geographic Store
* Alaska Public Lands Information Center (APLIC)
* Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau (FCVB)
* Tanana Chiefs Conference (TCC) cultural programs
* Denakkanaaga, the regional Alaska Native Elder's organization

The Center will be the gateway to experiencing the grandeur of Interior Alaska. Located on the banks of the Chena River in downtown Fairbanks, this new facility will celebrate our land and the people who live here. It will educate residents and visitors about our natural and cultural history, and inspire them to go out and explore all that Fairbanks and the Interior has to offer.

The cache is accessible from the parking lot or the sidewalk in front of the center. It is just a small cache with only a log. I have placed this cache so that visitors can grab the cache even if they only have a few hours in Fairbanks and are dependent on tour buses to get around. This can be a very popular and busy area so use extreme caution with grabbing the cache.
