How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Commission consults with every appropriate local advisory committee and regional council consultation process directed by P.L. 96-487 (the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act), the Commission is required to hold public meetings in all areas affected by the subsistence hunting program.Federal law and regulation provide the opportunity for continued subsistence uses, including hunting, fishing, and trapping within Lake Clark National Park. The Commission was established by Congress to devise and recommend to the Secretary of the Interior and the Governor of Alaska a program for subsistence hunting within Lake Clark National Park. The Commission’s recommendations help the NPS to ensure the continuation of the opportunity for local rural residents to engage in the subsistence use of resources in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. The NPS has adopted the following mission statement to guide its activities. Subsistence will be managed as a legislated use consistent with the provisions of ANILCA , the Organic Act of 1916, and the park s enabling legislation to:•protect the opportunity for qualified local rural residents to continue traditional subsistence activities •recognize that subsistence ways of life differ from region to region and are continuing to evolve, and where appropriate, park management practices may reflect regional diversity and evolution •promote local involvement and participation in processes associated with subsistence management •ensure that management practices involving the utilization of public lands adequately consider the potential for restriction of subsistence uses and impacts upon subsistence resources •ensure that management of park resources is consistent with the conservation of unimpaired ecosystems and natural and healthy populations of fish and wildlife, incorporating scientific data and principles with traditional knowledge and cultural values and•promote effective communication and mutual understanding of subsistence uses and related cultural and social values, and park purposes and protection,between the NPS, subsistence users, the State of Alaska and the public.
How is membership balanced?*Membership, as prescribed by the Commission's enabling legislation, consists of nine members as follows: (a) three members appointed by the Secretary of the Interior; (b) three members appointed by the Governor of Alaska; and (c) three members appointed by the regional council, as established by the Secretary or the State pursuant to section 805 of P.L. 96-487. The members include a range of individuals having personal knowledge of the region's subsistence.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The SRC generally meets twice a year, or as often as circumstances require. Commission recommendations are vitally important on matters relating to the taking of wildlife within the park, and are the foundation for the development and review of the subsistence hunting program.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Commission is a forum that promotes effective communication and mutual understanding of subsistence uses and related cultural resources. The Commission is regularly consulted by the National Park Service to provide input and make recommendations on issues affecting subsistence managment within Lake Clark National Park and Preserve.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open.
Recommendation RemarksThe Lake Clark National Park Subsistence Resource Commission did not submit formal subsistence hunting plan recommendations to the Secretary of Interior during FY 2020. The Commission met twice during fiscal year 2020. These meetings were held on 2 October 2019 in Port Alsworth, AK and 22 April 2020 via teleconference. The following recommendations were offered by the commission: Motions were approved regarding proposals to change federal subsistence hunting and trapping regulations. These included opposing WP20-08. The SRC thinks the issue should be resolved at a local, not statewide, level. The SRC supported proposal WP20-27 as written and proposal WP20-30 as modified in the OSM preliminary conclusion. The SRC suggested that clarifying language be added to the regulation so that it is clear that only 4 Alaska hares may be taken each season. The SRC further supported proposal WP20-31 and proposal WSA20-04 as written.

Number Of Recommendations CommentHistorically, only formal hunting recommendations were tracked by this report. Federal and state wildlife proposals will also be included in the SRC's recommendations list. The Commission made 5 recommendations in FY 2020. The following recommendations were offered by the commission on Federal Subsistence wildlife proposals:

1) oppose WP20-08 that requests implementing a statewide requirement that traps and snares be marked with either the trapper’s name or State identification number;
2) support WP20-27 that requests a unit-specific regulation for Unit 17 allowing use of a snowmachine to assist in the taking of a caribou and allowing caribou to be shot from a stationary snowmachine, using the regulatory language adopted by the Alaska Board of Game in February 2018.
3) support WP20-30 with modification to replace the term “tundra hare” with the term “Alaska hare” throughout Federal subsistence regulation to reflect contemporary nomenclature and reduce regulatory complexity between State and Federal regulations. The proposal requests that the Alaska hare season in Unit 9 be shortened from a year round season to Nov. 1 – Jan. 31, and that the harvest limit be reduced from no limit to 1 per day and 4 annually. The SRC suggested that clarifying language be added to the regulation so that it is clear that only 4 Alaska hares may be taken each season;
4) support WP20-31 that requests that the harvest limit for ptarmigan in Unit 9 be decreased from 20 ptarmigan per day/40 in possession to 10 ptarmigan per day/20 in possession and that the harvest season be shortened from Aug. 10 – Apr. 30 to Aug. 10 – last day of February;
5) support WSA20-04 that requests that the Federal in-season manager be delegated authority to open and close seasons, announce harvest limits, and set sex restrictions for caribou in all or portions of Units 9A, 9B, 9C, 17A, 17B, 17C, 18, 19A, and 19B for the 2020-2022 regulatory cycle.

Agency Feedback Comment*The National Park Service and the Commission use public meetings to evaluate recommendations and proposals.Narrative Description*Federal law and regulation provide the opportunity for continued subsistence uses, including hunting, fishing and trapping within Lake Clark National Park. The Commission is a forum that promotes effective communication and mutual understanding of subsistence uses and related cultural resources. The Commission consults with every appropriate local advisory committee and regional council for comment and input on draft hunting plan recommendations. In addition to the advisory committee and regional council consultation process directed by P.L. 96-487 (the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act), the Commission is required to hold public meetings in all areas affected by the subsistence hunting program. The Subsistence Resource Commission for Lake Clark National Park was established by the Congress to devise and recommend to the Secretary of the Interior and the Governor of Alaska a program for subsistence hunting within Lake Clark National Park. The Commission's unique insight on local customary and traditional patterns of subsistence use within the park has been important in developing workable subsistence hunting plan recommendations. The Commission’s recommendations help the NPS to ensure the continuation of the opportunity for local rural residents to engage in the subsistence use of resources in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve.
