Welcome to the Wrangell-St. Elias Planning Webpage. The National Park Service prepares a variety of planning and environmental documents to help guide it in managing park resources. These documents can range from site-specific impact analyses on facility locations to broader park-wide plans for future use and management of the park.
The links below provides access to any current plans, environmental impact analyses, and related documents on public review. Your opinion does count, so please provide feedback and submit comments for any documents available for public review.
The best way to capture your views is through a website called NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC). This website covers all of the National Park Service sites including Wrangell-St. Elias. Click here to access this website.
