Denali National Park
Protecting a National Treasure
The six-million-acre Denali National Park and Preserve is home to grizzly bears, wolves, Dall sheep and moose, as well as to Mount McKinley, the highest mountain in North America, standing at 20,320 feet. Although most of the park is under the protection of the National Park Service, some land within the park is privately owned and subject to development. Historic mining claims threaten the park's pristine wilderness.
ALC protected 42 acres within Denali's historic Kantishna Mining District in 2003. The land’s proximity to the park's main road and its buildable terrain had made it one of the largest, commercially viable private properties in the national park. By preventing large-scale resort development in the heart of the national park, ALC was able to preserve one of our nation's greatest natural treasures.
