Alaska River Guide (9780882404974);1993, p44
The article gives a couple of tips for dealing with the environment during camping along rivers in Alaska. Vegetation grows slowly in the state; and the land is easily damaged by overuse. Wherever tundra vegetation or delicate meadows dominate the landscape, the land cannot withstand much human impact without plant cover being damaged or destroyed. To practice minimum-impact camping, group size on trips should be no more than six people. Larger groups increase human waste, noise, and garbage.
