Nominations for candidates to fill upcoming vacancies on the Denali National Park Subsistence Resource Commission are being accepted through May 31, 2011. The Subsistence Resource Commission (SRC) provides a venue for local subsistence users to have input into the management of subsistence resources in Denali National Park. It was established by ANILCA and charged with recommending a program for subsistence hunting in the park.  

The SRC prepares proposals to change federal subsistence regulations and comments on proposals submitted by others that affect Denali National Park. Members are appointed by the Governor, the Secretary of the Interior, and Regional Advisory Councils. The nine-member SRC meets twice a year at various locations surrounding the park. Commission members serve as volunteers but may be reimbursed for their travel expenses. Initial appointments are typically for three-year terms and may be renewed.

For an application or additional information about the nomination process, contact Amy Craver subsistence manager, at (907) 683-9544 or amy_craver@nps.gov.

Denali is home to both black bears and grizzly (brown) bears. Black bears inhabit the forested areas of the park, while grizzly bears mainly live on the open tundra. Almost all bears seen by visitors along the Park Road are grizzlies.
