Lake Clark-2020 Proposed Superintendent's Compendium Changes
The National Park Service is taking public comment on the proposed compendium changes for Lake Clark National Park and Preserve (LACL) from January 15 through February 15.
2020 proposed changes to the Superintendent's compendium for LACL consist of the following:
-requirement for bear resistant electric fencing when camping in some areas.
-food storage requirements for the new Joe Thompson public use cabin.
-allow fires in designated fire rings in some areas currently closed to campfires.
-require the removal of human waste and sanitary products in some areas where bathroom facilities are not available.
-require a permit for the grazing of livestock.
-allow the use of e-bikes in some areas of the park, including some areas with proposed seasonal restrictions.
The Superintendent's Compendium is the summary of park specific rules implemented under the discretionary authority of the park Superintendent. The park compendium is updated annually and is a written compilation that addressed designations, closures, permit requirements, and other restrictions and/or specifications imposed under the discretionary authority of the superintendent. The Superintendent's Compendium is prepared in accordance with the delegated authority contained within the regulations in Title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter I, Parts 1 through 7, as authorized by Title 54, United States Code, Section 100101 and 100751, and establishes regulatory provisions for Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. Parts 1 through 6 are general regulations applicable to all areas of the National Park System, and Part 13 contains special regulations specific to individual parks in Alaska.
The park compendium does not contain those regulations found in 36 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and other United States Codes (U.S.C.) and CFR Titles which are enforced without further elaboration at the park level.
