Park Service wants ideas on backcountry use

Posted: Friday, November 15, 2002

JUNEAU (AP) -- The National Park Service is collecting opinions on how Glacier Bay National Park and two other parks should be managed.

The Park Service will hold a public meeting in Juneau Tuesday.

The agency is developing plans to manage areas without roads or major facilities in Glacier Bay, Gates of the Arctic and Wrangell-St. Elias national parks.

The agency said the backcountry will be divided into zones for different types of activities such as hiking, skiing, camping and river-running, snowmachining, airplane landings and boating.
