Enabling LegislationKenai Fjords' enabling legislation is the starting point for understanding the purpose of the park. Any park unit's enabling legislation outlines the specific reason(s) why Congress designated the place a national park (or national preserve, etc).
Section 201 of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) states:
The park shall be managed for the following purposes, among others:
The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) not only created the park but mandates management which protects a unique Alaskan lifestyle on these lands. A multitude of laws, regulations, and policies govern the management of Kenai Fjords National Park and regulate visitor use of this area.
These regulations help us protect park resources while also providing visitors with a safe and enjoyable experience.
