Most of the Arctic, like most of the world, is commonly owned. With ownership comes the obligation to manage our resources for the benefit of the total. To do that, we must understand the reality, the richness, and the responsibility of the North.

2013 ANILCA Seminar
8:30 am – 4:30 pm, March 6-7, 2013
BLM Campbell Creek Science Center, Anchorage

Anyone who wants to understand Alaska – its land, relationships and resources – must understand ANILCA…
the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980

Participants will gain an understanding of:
• Alaska’s lands history (especially Statehood and ANCSA) and ANILCA
• The key provisions of ANILCA, including access to subsistence, traditional activities, inholdings, transportation and utilities
• Alaska exceptions written by Congress to support continuation of Alaska’s rural way of life and to address Alaska’s lack of infrastructure
• Jurisdiction and status of navigable waters, submerged lands and RS2477s
• General hunting, fishing and trapping on federal lands
• Wilderness Act exceptions in ANILCA
• Management planning and on-going ANILCA implementation

Led by Dr. Roger Pearson, Institute of the North Senior Fellow and Professor Emeritus at UAF, along with a steering committee of experts, this two-day seminar is critical for new lands and resource managers at the state and federal level, as well as Alaska Native corporation staff. The registration fee includes a comprehensive ANILCA Study Guide and CD; lunches and breakfasts; as well as lively discussion with expert guest speakers.
