    Description

    Overlapping designations of park, preserve, and wilderness are assigned to Lake Clark National Park and Preserve in south-central Alaska. The Park was established in 1980 as a result of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA). Consisting of over four million acres, it includes homelands and hunting and fishing grounds for the inland Dena’ina, a northern Athabaskan-speaking people, who still engage in subsistence practices within the park. Dena’ina understandings of the environment include multiple spiritual dimensions. The Park and Preserve are also used by sport fishers and hunters, backpackers, rafters, and other park visitors who are in search of a variety of wilderness experiences. National Park Service researchers conduct a range of research projects that contribute to efforts to monitor and protect cultural and natural resources in the area. In the midst of these multiple layers of designation, meaning and use, differences in perspective and value are constantly negotiated.
