ANILCA Training

Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980

2020-2021 ANILCA Trainings

What is ANILCA?

Through ANILCA, Congress designated 104 million acres of new national parklands, wildlife refuges, and other conservation lands in Alaska, for a total of 139 million acres (more than one third of the state). Congress balanced the unprecedented scale of these designations with similarly unprecedented accommodations for Alaskans’ way of life and reliance on a resource-based economy.


This course is offered in partnership with the US Department of the Interior University (DOIU), building on a curriculum developed in 2004 with an appropriation from Congress – and now substantially improved to meet contemporary needs.

ANILCA Training Objectives

Seek a greater understanding of this sweeping legislation and its influence on conservation policy, business opportunities, Alaska residents’ way of life, resource development, and public land management in Alaska. Understanding ANILCA assists both federal managers and non-federal stakeholders in finding implementation solutions that continue to balance conservation and Alaska’s unique circumstances. Participation by multiple agencies and non-federal stakeholders enriches the learning experience.

Recommended for Federal agencies with ANILCA implementation responsibilities, state and local land and resource managers, Native corporations, tribal entities, rural residents and inholders, as well as community leaders, policy makers, consultants, news media, the academic community and the interested public.


Over a dozen presenters include federal and non-federal subject matter experts with extensive ANILCA experience.


General Registration $575. Tuition includes two days of instruction, copy of ANILCA & Amendments; presentation documents; and a portable USB drive with relevant laws, regulations and other supporting documents. Lunch and snacks are included in the price. There is a nonrefundable $75 deposit fee and there are no refunds, unless a replacement can be found. Federal employees must register through DOIU Talent through this link.
