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:
