Management

The park was established in 1980 by theAlaska National Interest Lands Conservation Actto preserve in perpetuity unique fjord and rainforest ecosystems, the vast Harding Icefield, rich and varied marine and terrestrial wildlife, and historical and archeological reminders of the native peoples of the Alaska coast.

Volunteers help out at Kenai Fjords National Park with various aspects of park management including trail work, exotic plant removal, coastal research projects and providing information to park visitors.
 

Jobs

We fill positions in many fields, including interpretation, maintenance, administration, resource management, education and law enforcement. Some jobs are office-oriented, others focus on working with the public, and some involve working outdoors. Each job performs a vital function - that of providing visitors an opportunity to enjoy a unique experience, while working hard to preserve natural and cultural resources for future generations.

 

The National Park Service (NPS) plans for one purpose - to ensure that the decisions it makes will be carried out as effectively and efficiently as possible. The National Park Service prepares a variety of planning and environmental documents to help guide management of park resources.
