Environmental Assessment for Rehabilitation of Coastal Emergency Shelter Cabin available for public review and comment
Bering Land Bridge National Preserve is proposing to construct a replacement cabin on the southeast shore of the Cowpack Lagoon.In 2006, the Kividluk Emergency Shelter Cabin, located at Kividlo, was destroyed by high winds. There are currently no NPS shelters available for many miles - about 37 miles by snow machine to Shishmaref or 50 miles to Kotzebue if Kotzebue Sound is frozen. A new coastal emergency shelter cabin would provide life-saving emergency shelter for subsistence users, the public, and NPS staff in the area during severe weather.
