Comment and Review
Just as cartographers draw maps that help hikers know where they are going, park planners facilitate the development of guiding documents, or plans, that provide managers with directions for how a park should be managed. Planners bring together the ideas of park staff and interested members of the public to create plans that provide a vision for what the park will be like in the years to come. Your voice is integral in shaping the future of Denali.

Did You Know?
Warmer temperatures have led to dramatic thawing of permafrost. Thaw releases carbon, as once-frozen materials decompose, but allows increased plant growth. Researchers in Denali are studying whether thawing permafrost will increase or decrease world-wide carbon emissions.
