Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve was designated as part of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act signed by President Jimmy Carter on December 2, 1980. Located entirely north of the Arctic Circle, the park and preserve is the second largest park in Alaska, covering over 8 million acres. This roadless landscape is accessible only by foot or air taxi and encompasses much of the Brooks Range. People have lived in the Brooks Range area for over 12,000 years, and the park protects the most extensive archeological records of any park in Alaska. Those living in the area today hold to the traditions of their ancestors, relying on native fish, wildlife and plants for their survival.
