State parks director joins national conservation group

Posted: Wednesday, October 30, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- State parks director Jim Stratton is joining the National Parks Conservation Association as director of the organization's Alaska regional office.

Stratton will begin the post in early December.

Stratton will work with the National Park Service and others in park planning, association officials said.

Through the state Department of Natural Resources, Stratton helped establish Alaska's first trails protection program and negotiated trail easements from individual donors.

The association was founded in 1919 as a private, nonprofit advocacy group dedicated to protecting, preserving and enhancing the national parks system.
