Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Aniakchak National Monument Subsistence Resource Commission is an advisory group. Federal law and regulation provide the opportunity for continued subsistence uses, including hunting, within the Aniakchak National Monument. 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.
How is membership balanced?*Each SRC member is appointed to a three year term. The charter allows members to continue to serve until the appointing source reappoints or makes a new appointment. 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 conditions, and having an interest in Federal subsistence management.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Commission generally meets twice a year, or as often as circumstances require.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The National Park Service (NPS) recognizes the benefits of seeking advice and assistance from local residents. In 1980, the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) authorized the establishment of the Subsistence Resource Commissions (SRC) to devise and recommend to the Secretary of the Interior and the Governor of Alaska a program for subsistence hunting within Aniakchak National Monument. The Commission's unique insight on local customary and traditional patterns of subsistence use within the monument has been important in developing workable subsistence hunting plan recommendations. The Commission’s recommendations will help the NPS to ensure the continuation of the opportunity for local rural residents to engage in the subsistence use of resources in Aniakchak National Monument 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 monument'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 arecontinuing to evolve, and where appropriate, park management practicesmay reflect regional diversity and evolution;•promote local involvement and participation in processes associated withsubsistence management;•ensure that management practices involving the utilization of public landsadequately consider the potential for restriction of subsistence uses andimpacts upon subsistence resources;•ensure that management of park resources is consistent with the conservation of unimpaired ecosystems and natural and healthy populations of fishand wildlife, incorporating scientific data and principles with traditionalknowledge and cultural values; and•promote effective communication and mutual understanding of subsistenceuses and related cultural and social values, and park purposes and protection,between the NPS, subsistence users, the State of Alaska and the public.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open to the public. During each meeting time is allocated for public testimony. The public is welcome to present written or oral comments to the Commission. Open meetings strengthen public confidence and provide opportunity for more public involvement.
Recommendation RemarksNo recommendations were made in FY 2020. The Aniakchak Subsistence Resource Commission did not meet during fiscal year 2020.

Agency Feedback Comment*The National Park Service provides feedback to the Commission on subsistence related matters. The Aniakchak National Monument SRC plays an important role in the monument’s management by identifying issues and providing recommendations to the Superintendent for resolution of user conflicts. This role is generally served through the SRC’s reviews and comments on management actions, development plans, and proposals that may have an affect on subsistence uses and values.NPS staff actively consult with the SRC on planning efforts undertaken in Aniakchak National Monument and Preserve that may have an affect on subsistence uses. The SRC is consulted on issues such as development concept plans, development issues, and NPS park strategic plans (for example, the Resource Management Plan, Statement for Management, and the General Management Plan). Park planning provides a foundation for decision making. NPS plans represent an organizational commitment to the public and to Congress on how conservation units will be managed. Each NPS area is required to prepare several planning documents to provide guidance for preservation, use and development. Aniakchak National Monument and Preserve currently has, or is developing, a Statement for Management, a General Management Plan, and a Resource Management Plan.Narrative Description*The Aniakchak National Monument Subsistence Resource Commission is an advisory group. Federal law and regulation provide the opportunity for continued subsistence uses, including hunting, within the Aniakchak National Monument. 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. The Commission develops and reviews proposals to change subsistence regulations for Aniakchak National Monument. 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.
