DCC Comments on the NPS Wonder Lake Weather Station EA
On May 5, DCC submitted comments regarding the EA for a Climate Station west of the Wonder Lake Campground in Denali National Park and Preserve.
DCC generally supported the preferred alternative of siting a USCRN climate station in a location close to an existing road near Wonder Lake campground, noting the long-term benefit to science. However, we raised a few concerns as the station will lie close to the Wilderness boundary and within a development zone in the Wilderness exclusion intended for campgrounds, rest areas, trailheads, utility corridors, gravel acquisition, and parking.
