Alaska. (Regional Report: On NPCA's Works In The Parks).

In August, the U.S. District Court in Alaska rejected claims by native corporations to lands in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. The villages claimed that the Department of the Interior must approve and convey land selections along the Cook Inlet coast under the Native Claims Settlement Act. The lands include nearly 30,000 acres within the boundaries of Lake Clark National Park and Preserve.

In response to the court's decision, NPCA's Alaska Regional Director Chip Dennerlein said, "the lands on the Lake Clark coast were always intended to be the very last resort-only in the event that entitlements could not be fulfilled from other specified lands."
