Preservation is at the heart of the NPS mission, even more so at Gates of the Arctic. In the winter of 2014, twenty sled dogs and two kennels staff from Denali National Park & Preserve joined several staff from Gates of the Arctic and Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve to clean up a remote section of designated wilderness in Gates of the Arctic.
