Environmental Assessment for Construction of Replacement Subsistence Cabins is Available for Public Comment

The National Park Service has released for public comment an Environmental Assessment (EA) which evaluates the impacts associated with replacing two cabins used for subsistence activities within Denali National Preserve. The requested cabins would replace two traditionally used trapline cabins on the Herron River and at Live Trap Lake.

The EA will be available for public review from February 15 until March 14. Public comments can be sent electronically at: parkplanning.nps.gov If you would like to comment in writing on the project, please submit your comments in to Superintendent, Denali National Park and Preserve, P.O. Box 9, Denali Park, AK 99755. Comments may faxed to (907) 683-9612.

Warmer average temperatures over several decades have resulted in expansion of woody vegetation. If this warming trend continues, it will change Alaska's ecosystems and drastically alter the physical appearance of Denali's landscape, as treeline marches higher up the mountains.
