NPS Publishes 2012 Acoustical Monitoring Report

December 17, 2013

In November, NPS researcher Davyd Betchkal published the Acoustic Monitoring Report for Denali National Park and Preserve for 2012. The report summarizes the measurements taken at automated sound stations placed at 11 locations around Denali in 2012, and may be downloaded at http://irmafiles.nps.gov/reference/holding/485326. This document is very important for understanding the extent of aircraft, snowmachine, and other noise in the Denali Wilderness and elsewhere in the backcountry, and for assessing whether the park’s Backcountry Management Plan standards are being achieved. If you are curious about noise in a particular location, this report may also provide that information. Nine summertime locations included Cathedral Mountain, McKinley River, the upper West Branch of the Toklat, Kichatna Mountains, and the toe of the Kanikula Glacier among others. Winter locations included Hines Creek and the Dunkle Hills. NPS also gathered baseline data at Bison Gulch to be compared to conditions after the start-up of the Healy 2 power plant.

DCC Annual Meeting keeps the conversation going

May 29, 2012

We enjoyed desserts, beverages, door prizes (thanks Julia for the hats), and conversation on our important issues of concern on Memorial Day evening this year. The Denali Education Center provided the perfect location on this balmy spring evening to catch up with friends old and new and let you know up-to-the minute information.  Over 30 folks enjoyed the evening and shared information and concern over topics as widely disparate as coal plant permitting, wolf trapping and habitat and vehicle management on the Park Road.  We appreciate our generous and loyal members. The spring membership drive continues in high gear….keep in touch on mail@denalicitizens.org.

Comments on Military Training Areas due Friday March 4

March 3, 2011

The military will accept comments for two more days, through March 4th, on changes to ground and air training areas known as the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex (JPARC).   The proposals, a joint effort of multiple branches of the military, would affect airspace throughout Alaska and would increase ground operations in the Interior.  Specifics include extended nighttime training hours, including airspace above Denali National Park and Preserve in what is known as the Susitna MOA.  Expanded flight training areas and lowered flight ceilings (down to 500 feet above ground level) are proposed over the Denali Highway.  Expanded land use, including northern portions of the Denali Borough,  would include the use of live ordnance.  Comments made now are part of the early stages of Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) development.  DCC’s comments, recommending no action on the alternatives proposed, align with a variety of local individuals and groups, including the Denali Borough Assembly and the Middle Nenana Fish and Game Advisory Committee.  More information and an online comment form can be found at the JPARC website.  Contact DCC Board Member Hannah Ragland for more information at hbragland@hotmail.com.  Read DCC’s comments by clicking on the link below.

Denali National Park Aircraft Overflights Advisory Council to meet this Friday in Anchorage – December 3, 2010

November 28, 2010

Campbell Creek Science Center located at 5500 Science Center Drive in Anchorage
9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


DCC Members who find themselves in Anchorage this Friday should plan to drop in for all or part of this meeting. For directions or an agenda, email me at nancy@denalicitizens.org.  The meeting is open to the public and has time allocated for public testimony.  You may submit written and/or oral comments.

Why the need for an Overflights Advisory Council During the planning process to complete the 2006 Denali National Park & Preserve Backcountry Management Plan, the public identified impacts from aircraft overflights and airplane landings as a critical issue.  While aircraft are an important means of visitor access to remote areas of the park, overflights and landings have resulted in substantial changes in the natural sound environment and have generated new conflicts with park users on the ground.  In order to identify efforts that should be made to reduce impacts from aircraft overflights, the Overflights Advisory Council was created. The council will advise the Secretary of the Interior on measures for achieving desired future resource conditions as outlined in the Backcountry Management Plan.  The Council will also develop voluntary measures for assuring the safety of passengers, pilots, and mountaineers.

The Council formed in 2007 and has already met 8 times, convening meetings in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Denali and Talkeetna.  Items of interest on the agenda usually include presentations by the soundscape specialists from Denali National Park.  The park is, at present, analyzing its entire soundscape and the council has identified certain “hotspots” or problem areas where non-natural sound may be a factor in resource integrity. The Council promotes education and awareness of this issue, and works together with commercial air service providers and park staff to develop solutions.

Additonal information on the Overflights Advisory Council is available at: http://www.nps.gov/dena/parkmgmt/aoac.htm If you have any questions about the meeting, contact Nancy Bale at 907-277-3825.  I am a member of the Council, representing local environmental interests. You may email me, too at nancy@denalicitizens.org.
