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.
