The Copper River Valley is a showcase for many kinds of Alaskan wildflowers   Copper River Country is home to
many animals, large and small
The forests, meadows, and shorelines of Alaska's Copper River Valley are populated by wild mammals, both large and small. Some of the largest land animals in North America may stroll across the highway ahead of your vehicle, or appear along the shores and gravel bars of a river as you focus your binoculars. Moose, bears (grizzly and black), and bison may be observed or, probably more frequently, may be the ones doing the observing. Alongside these hulks, some of the world's smallest animals run, scamper, and flit. The pygmy shrew, tiniest mammal in North America, hunts these woods, and the little brown bat, weighing less than half an ounce, searches night skies for insects.
