Civic Engagement: Fall 2022

Thank you all very much for providing thoughtful comments to the National Park Service regarding the future of the Katmai National Park and Preserve's wilderness and backountry. From March 21, 2022, through May 3, 2022, the National Park Service (NPS) invited the public to provide input as part of a civic engagement process for the development of a wilderness and backcountry management plan for Katmai National Park and Preserve and Alagnak Wild River.

By the close of this comment period, the National Park Service had received 24 correspondences on the project website. In addition, the project StoryMap logged more than 300 views. Of the correspondences submitted on the project website, the majority (75%) were from Alaska residents. Two comments were submitted by Colorado and California residents, and one comment was submitted each by Washington and Florida residents.

This report provides an overview of the planning process and a summary of public comments, grouped by topic questions posed to the public during the review period.
