Commemorating ANILCA at 40
The new issue of Alaska Park Science celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA). The Alaska Region of the National Park Service is reflecting on the impact, legacy, and future of this unique legislation. Many Alaskans experience ANILCA as both a blessing and a burden. While tremendous hurdles have been overcome, there are many yet to be faced. This issue of Alaska Park Science provides a range of perspectives on ANILCA that we hope strikes a balance that reflects over four decades of varied experiences.
