Proposed Commercial Fishing Cabin Environmental Assessment Available for Review
Contact: Allison Banks, Public Information Officer, 907-697-2230
The National Park Service has received an application for construction of a cabin to support commercial fishing activities in the Glacier Bay National Preserve at Dry Bay. The permit applicant is a qualified commercial fisherman. The proposed cabin would be located on a 0.25 acre parcel adjacent to Dog Salmon Creek. Because issuance of the permit would result in soil and vegetation disturbance and new construction, an Environmental Assessment has been prepared to evaluate potential effects to preserve resources.
All Glacier Bay planning projects are now listed on the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website at the following link:

John Muir, beloved naturalist and father of Yosemite National Park, came to Glacier Bay in 1879 to find direct evidence of the presence of glaciers. He believed that Yosemite had been carved by glacier and was able to validate his hypothesis with what he saw in Glacier Bay.
