This report describes the work performed by the Alaska Exotic Plant Management Team at Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve and Gates of the Arctic National Park & Preserve during the 2011 season including objectives, methods, and major conclusions. This field work is a continuation of work done by the Alaska Exotic Plant Management Team in the summer of 2010. The 2011 season was divided into four main regions from highest to lowest priority: Coal Creek Camp; Slaven’s Roadhouse; the Dalton Highway south of Coldfoot, AK; and Gates of the Arctic National Park & Preserve along the Middle Fork of the Koyukuk River. The main area of focus during the 2011 season was the high traffic areas along Coal Creek; a tributary...

During the 2012 field season, the Central Alaska Network (CAKN) Stream Monitoring Program made 130 site visits to 58 unique stream sites across the network (Figure 1), with each site being sampled one to five times from early May through late September. The data collected included instantaneous water chemistry, stream flow, water chemistry samples, macroinvertebrates, benthic diatoms, stable isotope samples, habitat data and environmental DNA samples. Continuous year-round temperature monitoring at 23 sites across the network is ongoing. At the request of DENA staff, the Stream Monitoring Program collected water chemistry, metals, invertebrates and diatoms from 7 sites in the Kantishna Hills. Active layer depth...

This report describes the work performed by the Alaska Exotic Plant Management Team in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve during the 2013 season. Three Alaska Exotic Plant Management Team members were stationed at Park Headquarters in Copper Center while working at various locations within the park and preserve. Work focused on invasive plant inventories and treatments park-wide, revegetation/ restoration efforts around park facilities and native seed collection in Kennicott Valley. Work was mapped using Trimble GeoXT units and was performed with the help of volunteers, a Southeast Alaska Guidance Association crew, Youth Conservation Corps interns, one Student Conservation Association intern, one Chicago...

This report describes the results of the 2006 field season for the Central Alaska Network (CAKN) flowing waters monitoring program. The key objectives for the 2006 field season were to assess the logistics involved in various sampling approaches and to collect data from a variety of streams as a way to begin to determine the range of natural variability for various candidate biological, chemical and physical metrics. I was able to collect data at 13 study sites located throughout WRST. Two of these sites were visited in two different seasons (summer and autumn) to assess seasonal variability, which was substantial for invertebrates and diatoms and moderate for water chemistry parameters. At one of these sites, multiple...

This is the fourth progress report for a multi-year study of glaciers in Alaskan national parks. The project will be completed in December 2013. Here we present results from mapping of all glacier extents and from measurements of surface elevation change for some glaciers in Kenai Fjords National Park (NP) and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve (NP&P). With the exception of some surface elevation analyses in Wrangell-St. Elias NP&P, we have accomplished all tasks on schedule for this deliverable.

A critical part of the National Park Service’s Arctic Network Inventory and Monitoring Programis monitoring the Western Arctic Caribou Herd (WACH). The status, distribution, movementsand trends in the condition of caribou in all five park units are monitored. Accurate and detailedmodels of snow cover within the range of the Western Arctic Caribou Herd will provideimportant context to help understand movement patterns and timing of caribou migrations. Snowdepth influences caribou winter distribution and habitat availability by impacting the costs oflocomotion and cratering for forage plants and lichens. Snow depth patterns on the landscapealso influence plant communities, affecting the distribution of preferred forage...

This report describes the work performed by the Alaska Exotic Plant Management Team at Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve during the 2010 season. Six Alaska Exotic Plant Management Team staff members were stationed at Park Headquarters in Copper Center while working at various locations within the park and preserve. Invasive plant inventories and treatments occurred around the following locations: along the McCarthy and Nabesna roads, along the Copper, Chitina, and Nizina rivers, at other locations in the Copper Basin, and at several backcountry destinations within park lands. Invasive plant infestations were mapped using Trimble GeoXT units and manual weeding was performed with the help of volunteers,...
