Did you know that the park has been shaped by many different glacial events over the past few hundred thousand years?
The Planning Process
Asi Keyi Natural Environment Park management planning began in April 2015 and the plan is scheduled to be recommended in 2017. The Steering Committee has established a process pursuant to the Kluane First Nation Final Agreement (Ch. 10, Sch. B).
Why does park planning take so long? Six major stages are required:
Progress Meter: Current Stage
Stage 4: Identifying management issues and options.
Throughout the planning process there are several opportunities for you to provide feedback on the planning process. Please check our Consultations page to get the details about consultation opportunities.
Did you know that licensed hunting has not been permitted in the park area since 1942 when it was designated as the Kluane Wildlife Sanctuary? First Nation trapping was re-established in the 1950s. First Nation hunting and fishing was re-established in the 1980s after a Kluane First Nation citizen challenged his inherent right to hunt, fish, trap and gather in the area at the Supreme Court.
