Dry Bay Facility Improvements

The NPS proposed to construct, reconstruct, demolish and relocate certain visitor and administrative facilities at Dry Bay in Glacier Bay National Preserve. An environmental assessment (EA) has been prepared for the project. The EA included an opportunity for public comment and review. A final decision has been made, and a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was issued on June 9, 2004 (see below). The project was completed in late summer, 2004. The environmental assessment is divided into two .pdf files, one containing the entire text of the EA and the other containing the appendices. The FONSI is a separate file. To view, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0 or higher, available for download here at no cost.

Interstadial Stump

Interglacial stumps can range from 250 to 10,000 years old. Some of these stumps are remnants of forests that predate the Little Ice Age and can help researchers understand the climate history of Glacier Bay.
