Based on public scoping, we identified eight major planning issues: (1) Protection of fish, wildlife, habitats, and subsistence; (2) management of access to refuge lands for community residents and the visiting public; (3) maintaining hunting opportunities; (4) addressing local public use needs; (5) maintaining water quality and quantity; (6) maintaining the wild character of the Refuge and quality visitor experiences; (7) proactively addressing the uncertainties of climate change; and (8) providing more outreach and better communication for the public. Based on the review and evaluation of the information contained in the draft CCP and EA, we have determined that implementation of the final CCP does not constitute...

PURPOSE: The provision of expanded visitor facilities and recreational opportunities in the south Denali region of Denali Park, Alaska is proposed. The plan would government management of the area until the year 2020. Over the past 20 years, general growth in the tourism industry statewide has brought more pressure for access to Alaska's wild lands. Visitation to the South Denali region has increased substantially in recent years and expanded recreational opportunities are needed. Three alternatives, including a No Action Alternative (Alternative A), which would support the 1997 Record of Decision for the South Side Denali Development Concept Plan and represent no change from the current policy, are considered in...

In 2003, the National Park Service (NPS) Water Resources Division received funding through the Natural Resource Challenge program to systematically assess watershed resource conditions in NPS units, establishing the Watershed Condition Assessment Program. This program, now titled the Natural Resource Condition Assessment (NRCA) Program, aims to provide documentation about the current conditions of important park resources through a spatially explicit, multi-disciplinary synthesis of existing scientific data and knowledge.

PURPOSE: The exchange of lands between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and Doyon, Limited is proposed to enhance the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge of Alaska. Doyon is the largest private landowner in the refuge and an Alaska Native regional corporation that has been interested in acquiring federal oil and gas interests since the refuge was established in 1980. Under the terms of an agreement in principle between the FWS and Doyon, the U.S. government would receive fee title to lease 150,000 acres of Doyon lands, including both surface and subsurface rights, with priority fish and wildlife habitats that can be incorporated into the refuge. Doyon would receive fee title to 110,000 acres of refuge lands,...

The Denali Backcountry Management Plan specifies indicators of resource conditions and the visitor experience. This study developed a visitor survey to measure the level of the indicators experienced by the visitors. Both overnight backpackers and day hikers were included in the sample; different surveys were developed for the two groups. Completed surveys were received from 191 backpackers (42% response rate) and 446 day hikers (77.4% response rate). A non-response test did not reveal differences that would bias results. Comparisons of the indicators to the standards were conducted three ways: 1) comparing the mean level, or percent when appropriate, of the indicators to the standard, 2) estimating for how many...

PURPOSE: The implementation of a revised comprehensive conservation plan for the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge of Alaska is proposed. The plan, which would perpetuate or replace the currently in force 1985 management plan, would guide management of the refuge for the next 15 years. The 1.32-million-acre refuge, which lies on the Kenai Peninsula along the Turnagain Arm and Cook Inlet, has been described as "Alaska in miniature" with reference to its cross-section of Alaskan habitats. Key issues identified during scoping include those related to large-scale habitat changes and the use of fire, management of existing facilities for public use while ensuring natural resource protection, enhancement of wildlife-dependent...

In accordance with the dictates of NPS-28 (the National Park Service's Cultural Resource Management Guideline), an administrative history describes how a park was conceived and established and how it has been managed to the present day. The park's legislative history and important issues in planning, land acquistion, development, public relations, and other topics of ongoing management concern are emphasized. This particular study has endeavored to fulfill those goals as they apply to Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve (WRST) in Alaska. WRST is the largest unit in America's national park system at 13.2 million acres, and while it was conceived primarily as a natural park, it also contains ample evidence...
