Alaska Center for the Environment works on issues that face Alaska’s federal, state, and borough lands; they are part of what makes the Alaska way of life special.
Alaska's Public Lands & Rivers
With over 200 million acres of federal public lands and millions of acres of state public lands, Alaska is truly a unique place.
These public lands and rivers provide us with fish and wildlife, clean air and water, scenic beauty, recreation, wilderness, and subsistence. Alaska Center for the Environment (ACE) works to ensure that these lands are managed to protect these resources for all Alaskans and future generations.
