Portfolio of Management Plans
This document describes Lake Clark's purpose, significance, fundamental resources and values, primary interpretive themes, and special mandates.
Wild and Scenic River Value Statements
The Wild and River Scenic River Value Statement identifies and articulates those resources and values that were critical to a river's designation and inclusion in the National Wild and Scenic River System. Lake Clark has three Wild and Scenic Rivers. Their value statements are being drafted and will be published in late 2014.
General Management Plan (GMP)

Long-Range Interpretive Plan (LRIP)

The park atlas is a collection of maps and geospatial data indicating areas of particular importance as to wilderness, natural, historical, wildlife, cultural, archeological, paleontological, geological, recreational, and similar resources. Atlases for Lake Clark and other National Park Service units throughout Alaska are being drafted.
Alaska Federal Lands Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)
This multi-agency plan assesses and monitors transportation related issues, performance, and maintenance for Federal lands in the state.
Wildlife Stewardship in National Park Service Areas in Alaska
Wildlife stewardship on NPS units in Alaska is guided by the Organic Act, the General Authorities Act, the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, Federal regulations, and NPS Management Policies. This document consolidates this collective guidance to serve as a focused reference for NPS staff as they evaluate the myriad issues and decisions facing the agency and the wildlife held in its trust. Further, this document will inform members of the public, fellow agencies, and partners about the considerations and constraints used by NPS when implementing mandates relative to wildlife.
