Canoe the Noatak River: Gates of the Arctic
The Gates of the Arctic is a vast national park, larger than the state of Connecticut and visited by far fewer people all year than visit Yellowstone in a single day. The park has no roads, no set trails, no cabins, and absolutely no ice cream stands. Access to the park is by private bush plane.The Noatak is a National Wild and Scenic River that empties the western section of the park. It begins high in the Brooks Range and flows into the ocean near Kotzebue – its entire 400 mile length lies above the Arctic Circle. Our canoe adventure started at Pingo Lake high in the mountains. We canoed nine days to Lake Matcharak where the river valley broadens.During that time we camped on sand bars and hiked into the surrounding hills. We saw only a handful of people and plenty of wildlife including caribou, fox, and a close encounter with a hillside of bear caves. Share our adventures on the Noatak with this eBook.

Landbird Monitoring in the Arctic Network: Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve and Noatak National Preserve (2010 Report) (Natural Resource Data Series NPS/ARCN/NRDS-2012/315)
Landbird Monitoring in the Arctic Network: Gates of
The Arctic Network Inventory and Monitoring program (ARCN) encompasses five park units including Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve (GAAR) and Noatak National Preserve (NOAT). The landbirds assemblage (passerines, near-passerines, raptors and galliformes) was chosen by the ARCN for long-term monitoring because it includes many species that spend the majority of their lives in terrestrial environments. Specific objectives of the ARCN landbird monitoring program are to: 1) determine annual longterm trends in density and frequency of occurrence of 5-10 of the most commonly detected landbird species along selected river corridors across ARCN during the breeding season (June); 2) determine annual long-term trends in landbird species composition and distribution in selected sites across ARCN during the breeding season (June); and 3) improve understanding of breeding bird-habitat relationships and the effects of invasive plants and climatic changes on bird populations.

Inhabited Wilderness: Indians, Eskimos, and National Parks in Alaska (New American West Series)
Inhabited Wilderness: Indians, Eskimos, and National Parks in
This volume, the first in the New American West Series edited by Elliott West, explores Alaska's vast national-park system and the evolution of wilderness concepts in the twentieth century. After World War II, Alaska's traditional Eskimos, Indians, and whites still trapped, hunted, and fished in the forests. Their presence challenged the uninhabited national parks and forced a complex debate over "inhabited wilderness." Focusing on three principal national parks--Glacier Bay, Denali, and Gates of the Arctic--the author explores the idea of "inhabited wilderness," which culminated in the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act in 1980. Among other units, the legislation set aside ten national parks, nine of which allow Alaska natives, whites included, "customary and traditional" subsistence use.
