Land Worth Protecting

Anchorage, Alaska

Landscape & Natural Carbon

Denali National Park. Home to North America's tallest peak. Accessible only by bus during the summer, and almost completely inaccessible in winter, it is one of the last truly wild places left. The park spans over 9,300 square miles (nearly the size of Massachusetts). 

In September, a limited number of passes are given out to Alaska residents in a road lottery. This pass allows visitors to drive a personal vehicle the entire length of the park road (92.5 miles), a journey that would take nearly 9 hours in a park bus.
