National Parks Group Applauds New Law to Protect and Enhance Denali National Park

Statement by Jim Stratton, Senior Regional Director for Alaska, National Parks Conservation Association

“The National Parks Conservation Association applauds Senators Murkowski and Begich and Representative Young in the successful passage of the Denali National Park Improvement Act. This bipartisan legislation, signed into law today by President Obama, takes a thoughtful approach to protecting roadless Alaska, promoting suitable renewable energy development, and honoring native Alaskans. We hope the Denali National Park Improvement Act is among many wins that our elected officials will collectively achieve for our national parks this Congress.”

“Any time you can reduce diesel consumption by generating electricity with hydro equals a good day for the planet.  We strongly endorse this part of the legislation that enables Kantishna lodge owners to do just that.”
