The Lake Clark National Park and Preserve museum collections consists of more than 200,000 objects-from an impressive herbarium collection to the many journals, letters, and objects of Richard Proenneke.
Collections staff also care for archeological artifacts from extensive surveys, over 2,000 historic photographs, a rich collection of oral history interviews, fossils, archives, preserved small mammals, and other items reflecting the cultural and natural history of this unique place.
Stories From the Past
By the Numbers
Many of these items are fragile and require special conservation. The museum specialists at Lake Clark National Park and Preserve ensure that these irreplaceable pieces of the past will be available to future generations.
