DCC Opposes Suction Dredge mining in Kantishna

June 8, 2016

MapA request to do in-stream suction dredge mining on a small fresh water stream with important grayling habitat has been submitted to the National Park Service, and DCC commented on the Environmental Assessment the service developed.

We opposed this project unequivocally, as a threat to streambed habitat and nearby resources, and because it reverses settled policy supporting willing seller buyout of mining claims in Kantishna.  NPS has had more than 26 years to make the buyout, and because of a failure of vision, has neglected to do so.

DCC submits proposal for No-Wolf-Take Buffer at Denali’s borders

May 8, 2016

2016-Proposal-Map-web

Despite a political atmosphere that rejects the need for protection of predators at the boundaries of National Parks, we decided to submit a Proposal for the February 2017 Board of Game Interior Region meeting next year.  While this meeting is a long time away, the deadline for proposals was April 29, 2016. On that date, both the National Park Service and the Denali Citizens Council submitted proposals.

We’ve copied the contents of our proposal below. A map of the region covered by the proposal is Read more

Board of Game supports shortened wolf hunting season north of Denali National Park

May 8, 2016

Proposal-141-webNPS Proposal passes at March Statewide Regulations Meeting

Without admitting that there is a conservation problem for Denali wolves, the Alaska Board of Game recently voted, 5-2, to shorten the wolf hunting season on a limited area of state lands in the Wolf Townships (see map on this page). This shortened season was brought forth by the National Park Service in Proposal 141, and was defended before the Board of Game by Superintendent Don Striker and Resources Chief Dave Schirokauer at its Statewide Regulations meeting in Fairbanks, March 18-29, 2016.  Proposal 141 ended wolf hunting on April 15th rather than May 31st. Board members Turner, Brown, Spraker, Hoffman and Probasco voted Yes, members Sager-Albaugh and Fanning voted No.

We celebrate this seemingly small but still significant change in regulation of hunting on lands outside Read more

Middle Nenana AC looks at NPS proposal to shorten wolf season – Tuesday Feb 16

February 15, 2016

wolfWhat: Middle Nenana River Fish and Game Advisory Committee
Where: Anderson Lion’s club
Time: Tuesday, February 16th, 6 PM
Agenda: Middle Nenana River AC Agenda 2016 Feb 16

Recently, DCC filed an agenda change request for the Board of Game to consider a wolf buffer at its March 2016 meeting in Fairbanks, in order to protect Denali Park wolves when they venture onto state lands northeast of the park. The National Park Service, unbeknownst to us, had also filed an ACR, using similar arguments but asking for a different solution. NPS asked that the Board shorten wolf hunting season from the current season, Aug 10 – May 31, to Aug 10 – April 15th, to help spare wolves that venture from the park during reproductive season and when more hunters are in the field at bear baiting stations (season starts April 30th).

The NPS ACR, ACR #20 (click to read), was accepted, and will considered as a proposal at the Board of Game meeting March 18-27 in Fairbanks.  On Tuesday February 16th, the Middle Nenana Fish and Game AC, our local advisory group, will meet in Anderson to discuss this and other proposals, and vote on its recommendations to the Board of Game.

Although a long drive, this meeting should prove to be interesting, as the Committee considers a variety of proposals destined to be heard by the Board of Game at its upcoming meeting.

DCC submits comments on Denali Trails Plan scoping

October 31, 2015

DCC submitted comments today supporting the existing vision for trails in the Denali National Park backcountry and suggesting that formal (built) trails be analyzed under a Formal Trails Plan.  We suggested some other areas where trails could be developed and gave our position on pets and bicycles.  Feel free to read our comments at the link below.

COMMENT DEADLINE OCTOBER 31: Denali National Park Trails Plan

October 30, 2015

 Transportation in Denali?
 PLEASE COMMENT ON TRAILS PLAN SCOPING – COMMENTS DUE SAT, OCT 31, 2015

We urge our members, especially those of you with long-term experience in the park, to provide comments during the  scoping process, which seeks input on a variety of issues, the trails vision, formal trails, maintenance issues, pets, bicycles and winter use.

You may comment using the PEPC website, or by email at dena_planning@nps.gov
 

Below are some of the issues and positions DCC plans to raise in our comments:

  • Vision for trails – We support retaining the vision (most recently voiced in the Backcountry Management Plan, 2006) of no formal (built) trails in Denali’s backcountry beyond those already approved in existing planning documents.
  • Social trail mitigation – We support the social trail monitoring program established in the Backcountry Management Plan (2006), and encourage NPS to implement it more fully by 

      –  developing indicators for when social trail formation is approaching impairment of resources.
    –  committing to specific actions it will take to mitigate impairment.
      –  educating bus drivers, guides and local businesses to direct hiking traffic away from more
    impacted social 
    trailheads.
    –  establishing a social trails working group.

  • We generally support the formal trails that have already been authorized – We think that a Formal Trails Plan should focus on taking a comprehensive look at Denali’s formal trails, both existing and proposed, and consider their overall impact on park resources and finances.  
  • Pets and bikes on trails – Family pets, on leash, could be acceptable on formal trails in the headquarters area only, but not the Triple Lakes Trail. Recreational dog mushing is acceptable in winter, subject to impact monitoring. Bicycles are acceptable on the park road, on designated former mining roads in Kantishna, and possibly on some formal trails in the headquarters area, but not Triple Lakes or the proposed Nenana River Trail.
  • Winter trails and river trailsWinter cross country skiing routes in the headquarters or Mt. Vista Rest Stop area could be laid out, subject to available funds. Otherwise, winter and river trails should not be mapped or developed on the north side of Denali Park. All forms of winter recreation must be monitored for impacts on wildlife. Development of any infrastructure to support winter recreation, even if temporary, must be analyzed through NEPA.
  • State and municipal lands at the park boundaries can provide a wider range of trail opportunities, if they are desired. One example of an area where this wider range could be considered is the planned South Denali Visitor Center. Denali National Park should maintain its commitment to wilderness recreation, dispersed, non-mechanical access, and scrupulous prevention of wildlife impacts.

COMMENT DEADLINE OCTOBER 31: Denali Borough planning recommendations

October 30, 2015

Color_Borough_Logo_WebThe consulting firm of Agnew::Beck was recently hired by the Denali Borough to assist with creating a management system for Borough-owned lands. Agnew::Beck has produced a draft set of recommendations and is looking for public comment on it. Download a copy of the Agnew::Beck land management recommendations, along with a trove of information on borough land planning, at the Denali Borough Land Management page

If you live, part or full-time, in the Denali Borough, or own lands in the borough, you have an interest in this process!  Review the recommended classifications for areas near your home and decide if this is what you want.


Your comments are important!
You may email comments to Agnew::Beck at the addresses below:
Adam Smith at adam@agnewbeck.com or Chris Beck at chris@agnewbeck.com
Phone: (907) 222-5424


DCC’s comments will express the following:

  • The Agnew::Beck process must result in action by the Denali Borough, to establish a vision for its lands using the classification process.
  • The vision is important, and includes identifying lands that are strategically located for economic development and lands that are better left to provide opportunities for dispersed recreation and wildlife habitat. Planners must think carefully about both the benefit and the cost to the borough of classification for development.
  • We urge the Denali Borough to move forward from classifying its own lands to establishing a coherent land classification and management system for the entire borough. The borough must develop its capacity to manage, especially as corporate interests eye lands within the borough for their pet projects.

DCC Comments on Draft Alaska Wildlife Action Plan

September 7, 2015

IMG_6278

We suggested that Dall’s Sheep be considered a sentinel species.

The Draft Plan, which seeks to list species of greatest conservation need in Alaska, and use federal funding to monitor and protect them, is available for download here.  Overall, the plan is very comprehensive and interesting, and its listings and concerns are well-presented. The problem of climate change is well-presented and actions to protect and preserve species in the face of climate change are committed to.

Public comment was solicited on the Draft Plan, with a deadline of September 4.  DCC’s comments made suggestions, asked questions and pointed out problems with the scope of this plan.  Read our comments below.

DCC Comments on Proposal to Rehabilitate 7 Mile Pit on the Park Road

September 7, 2015

Our comments asked for clarifications and modifications regarding a plan to expand the existing gravel pit at 5 Mile along the Park Road and eventually close Mile 7 pit.  The presence of wolves in a den near Mile 7 may complicate the rehabilitation project somewhat. In addition, we made suggestions regarding how to ensure that once rehabilitated this pit would be successfully re-designated wilderness.
