Have an idea for a trail, river, or park in your community?
Do you need help organizing and strengthening your team to meet project goals?
Are you looking to build programs that connect people to nature? If so, we can help!

The National Park Service Alaska Region Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) program supports community-led natural resource conservation and outdoor recreation projects across Alaska.

Our conservation and recreation planning professionals partner with community groups, nonprofits, tribes, and state and local governments to design trails and parks, conserve and improve access to rivers, protect special places, and create recreation opportunities. Federal agencies may apply in partnership with other organizations.

Contact us or follow along on Facebook and Instagram. Together, we help you get your conservation and outdoor recreation ideas on the ground.Apply today!
