Park Seeks Candidates for Subsistence Resource Commission
February 6, 2014
Nominations for candidates to fill upcoming vacancies on the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park Subsistence Resource Commission are being accepted through March 31, 2014. The Subsistence Resource Commission (SRC) provides a venue for local subsistence users to have input into the management of subsistence resources in Wrangell-St.Elias National Park. It was established under the provisions of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) and charged with recommending a program for subsistence hunting in the park.
The SRC prepares proposals to change federal subsistence regulations and comments on proposals submitted by others that affect Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Members are appointed by the Governor, the Secretary of the Interior, and Regional Advisory Councils. The nine-member SRC meets twice a year at various locations surrounding the park. Commission members serve as volunteers but may be reimbursed for their travel expenses. Initial appointments are typically for three-year terms and may be renewed.
