******************************
The Alaskan Eco Escape Educational Center is  Alaska's only Bioshelter.  It sits on the edge of Alaska's Chugach State Park and is two short miles up the mountain from  The Eagle River Nature Center.

Built originally as a Research and Development Facility back in 1987 by Bob Crosby, it continues to be a beacon of possibilities for sustainable living in Alaska and especially in the drought areas of the Lower 48. 

It has no well or septic system.  It collects rain and melt water in two 5,000 gallon cisterns and we reuse that water over and over again.  It has two composting toilets:  one a commercial Biolet and the other a homemade composting toilet.

The Mission
of the AlaskanEcoEscape


is to inspire others to live in a more sustainable way.

The Permaculture Master Plan





Alaskans have one of the highest carbon footprints in the U.S. mostly by using coal and oil to keep warm.  Ironically we can also see the most dramatic changes in our environment from global climate change.  We need to make changes.
