05-12-2017 Park Management Planning
The Canada National Parks Act requires each national park to have a management plan that reflects policies and legislation of Parks Canada and comprehensive land claims agreements. These plans provide strategic direction for management of parks and are to be reviewed every 10 years. The Board is currently involved in the development of a new management plan for Kluane National Park & Reserve.
It is the role of KNPMB to ensure that the implementation of the plan takes into account the recognition, respect and support of First Nations' Land Claims agreements and to act as a conduit for local people to participate in park management areas such as:
- Ecological monitoring;
- Cultural reintegration;
- Identify, understand, communicate and protect Southern Tutchone cultural resources;
- Heritage tourism;
- Interpretation and outreach;
- First Nation opportunities;
- Recreational use;
- Visitor services;
- Harvest zones;
- Trails, routes, and air access.
