In September 2014, the National Park Service (NPS) sought input on how to deal with social trails and proposed the idea of establishing new trails around the Eielson Visitor Center area. DCC submitted 5 pages of comments hoping to influence Denali in its planning process (see previous news: “DCC urges NPS to retain ‘no formal trails in wilderness’ policy – Read more in our comments on Eielson-area trails“. It seems that some of our suggestions were taken into consideration.

Until March 1, 2015 the NPS is seeking public comment on an Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluating improvements to the Gorge Creek Trail, which is located south of the Eielson Visitor Center (EVC) at Mile 66 on the Denali Park Road. The NPS is considering improving and repairing the Gorge Creek Trail in order to protect Read more

September 19, 2014

Transportation in Denali?What will transportation in and around the park look like in 2025? What do you want it to look like? This is a chance for us to help shape the future planning that happens in Denali.

The public is invited to attend a meeting regarding Denali National Park’s Long Range Transportation Plan on Wednesday, September 24 at 6:00 pm in the McKinley Village Community Center. This plan is being developed as part of a nationwide Park Service initiative to plan for multi-modal transportation on federal lands during the next 10-20 years.

Visitors to Denali National Park often use multiple types of transportation both in getting to the park and as part of their visit. Long Range Transportation Planning seeks to look at transportation challenges and accompanying solutions. Denali’s visitors come on planes, trains and automobiles, as well as on foot, aircraft, off-road vehicle, dogsled, you name it! From the use of the complex shuttle systems, to subsistence access, to travel along Denali’s remote waterways, there is much to consider about transportation in Denali. The input of area residents, commercial operators, and visitors will prove Read more

NPS releases Regulation and EA to amend Wildlife Harvest regulations in the Preserves

September 7, 2014

On September 4, 2014, the National Park Service released a long-awaited regulation prohibiting certain methods of hunting on National Park Preserve Lands.  This regulation is a response to recent changes in Alaska Department of Fish and Game Regulations that would allow certain hunting practices such as flashlighting black bear sows and cubs in their dens, shooting grizzly bears over bait, and extending the season for hunting wolves and coyotes.  Read the regulation at this link:  http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=NPS-2014-0004-0001

At the same time, NPS released an Environmental Assessment (EA) of this decision.  The EA describes the circumstances under which this regulation was developed and gives further information on the affected parks. View the EA at this link:

Denali National Park Research Provides New Insight Into Wolf Population Dynamics

Environmental Assessment on Improvements and Additions to Horseshoe Lake Trail Available for Public Comment

December 11, 2013

Contact:  Kris Fister, kris_fister@nps.gov, 907-683-9583

DENALI PARK, Alaska:  The National Park Service (NPS) is seeking public comment on an   Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluating improvements to the Horseshoe Lake Trail. The NPS is considering extending the trail around the lake and out to the Nenana River in order to protect park resources and enhance the visitor experience by providing a safe, sustainable trail.

The 1.5 mile-long Horseshoe Lake Trail is utilized by over 200 visitors per day in the peak season. It was constructed in 1940, the park’s first established trail, and in 2013 was determined to be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Horseshoe Lake is an oxbow lake, an abandoned channel of the Nenana River, and provides habitat for a variety of wildlife. The lake and surrounding area gives visitors opportunities to see moose, beaver, and many bird species. Anglers also hike in for the small fish in the lake. The trailhead is located at the railroad crossing (Mile 1) on the Denali Park Road.

Seventy years of high use has degraded the existing trail, and portions are eroding. A network of social trails has developed around the lake and throughout the area, creating additional erosion and damage to sensitive wildlife habitat, including beaver dams and lodges.

The EA evaluates two alternatives: Read more

Middle Nenana Fish & Game Advisory Committee to Meet in McKinley Village

November 16, 2013

IMG_1637The Middle Nenana Fish and Game Advisory Committee will meet at the McKinley Community Center on December 4 at 6:30pm. Holding a meeting in the McKinley Village area is unusual, as the Advisory Committee typically meets at the northern end of the Borough. As such, this represents a great opportunity for residents in the southern end of the Borough to interact with the Committee. It is also important, because a major item of the agenda is a vote for a new McKinley Village representative since long-serving member Nan Eagleson is stepping down. Any resident of the area Read more

Healy Basin Gas License appeal to be heard in Alaska Supreme Court

September 12, 2013

Below see the content of our recent Press Release on the upcoming Supreme Court oral arguments in our appeal of the Healy Basin Gas License.  If you are in Anchorage this coming Wednesday, you are encouraged to attend. For more information, call Nancy Bale at 244-2510.

“On Wednesday, September 18, 2013, the Alaska Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Denali Citizens Council vs. the State of Alaska, an appeal of the gas exploration license the state granted to Usibelli Coal Mine, Inc., covering 208,000 acres of state lands in and around Healy, Alaska and bordering the NE boundary of Denali National Park and Preserve.

Denali Citizens Council (DCC) argues in the appeal that the State of Alaska failed to justify including residential areas and the wildlife rich, recreationally important and sensitive Stampede Townships in the license area.   The Council also argues that DNR did not keep its commitment to impose in the license strong mitigation measures to protect other uses and values of the areas covered by the license.

“We are not opposed to gas exploration in the Healy area,” said DCC Director Nancy Bale, “but as we’ve stated from the beginning any gas exploration must be sensitive to the residents of the area and to the natural values that make this such a great area in which to live and recreate.  DNR’s decision does not ensure that will be the case.”

Anchorage Attorney Peter Van Tuyn will present oral arguments for DCC. The hearing will be conducted at 1:30 PM at Boney Courthouse, 303 K. Street, Anchorage Alaska.”
