National Historic Preservation Act Section 106 Assessment of Effects for the Management of Wildland Fire Fuels in Denali National Park and Preserve

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) requires federal agencies to take into account the effects of their projects on historic properties. There are two proposed undertakings related to management of wildland fire fuels in the Park. The first undertaking would be to pile and burn mechanically thinned vegetation on site within designated areas of the Park's Frontcountry Fire Management Unit. The second undertaking would quantify soil heating and the biophysical effects of select piles created during the first undertaking.

For both projects, no piles will be placed in or near (within 20m) of any historic property, and all resources not evaluated for the National Register of Historic Places will be treated as eligible. The majority of the Area of Potential Effects (APE) has been surveyed in the last two years, and the remaining APE will be surveyed in 2024; project work would not take place until survey has been completed and cultural resources inventoried in those locations.

Based on our review, as designed these undertakings should not adversely affect any historic properties. We have reached a NHPA, Section 106, determination of "No Historic Properties Affected" (36 CFR Part 800.5(3) (b)). This determination is now available for review and comment for 30 days (per 36 CFR 800.5(c)).
