Laws & Policies
There are many laws, regulations, and policies that govern the management of Bering Land Bridge National Preserve and regulate visitor use of this area. The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) not only created the preserve but mandates management which protects the rural Alaskan way of life, supports reindeer herding, protects a natural and cultural wonder at Serpentine Hot Springs, and protects a small remnant of the Bering Land Bridge for exploration and study. Most regulations governing visitor activities are found in Title 36 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part I, Sections 1-13.
