Denali State Park Trail Management Plan Meetings Scheduled
Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
The Alaska Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation (DPOR), has initiated a planning process to create Denali State Park's first Trail Management Plan. The park encompasses about 324,270 acres, the majority of which is undeveloped.
The most recent management plan for the park was finalized in 2006 and provides overall guidance for management of park lands and development of recreational facilities, consistent with the park's Mission Statement and applicable state laws and regulations.
The Denali State Park Trail Management Plan will set forth trail management guidelines and make recommendations for trail development in the park consistent with the park's management plan and the Division of Parks' Trail Management Policy.
The public is invited to become part of this planning effort by helping to identify the range of issues that should be addressed in the Denali State Park Trail Management Plan.
Open houses will be held from 7:00-9:00 PM at the following locations:
November 3 -- Talkeetna/Trapper Creek Area -- Su Valley Jr./Sr. High School
November 4 -- Wasilla -- Public Safety Building 61 (Corner of Lucille Street & Swanson Avenue)
November 5 -- Anchorage -- Campbell Creek Science Center
Written ideas and comments are encouraged during this initial scoping stage and should be submitted no later than December 15, 2009.
