Park Creation Timeline

On November 16, 1978, Lake Clark National Monument is created along with 15 others.
On December 2, 1980, the monument is changed to a national park, along with all other Alaskan national parks, by the Alaska Native Interests Land Conservation Act.

Animals and Plants

Large mammals include caribou, grizzly bears, moose, wolves, and Dall sheep. Smaller mammals include coyotes, wolverines, lynx, voles, and arctic ground squirrels.
There are very few reptiles and amphibians anywhere in Alaska due to the cold temperatures.
The park's diversity of habitat, from coastal waters to frozen peaks, leads to a wide variety of bird species. The NPS has prepared a bird checklist for the park, available here.
