The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) of 1980 created most of the national parklands in Alaska and impacts the National Park Service in many ways. ANILCA stipulates the designation of wilderness, subsistence management, transportation in and across parklands, use of cabins, mining, archaeological sites, scientific research studies and more. View the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act as signed into law on December 2, 1980 (Public Law 96-487, 94 Stat. 2371). Note this does not include any subsequent amendments to ANILCA.
