ABSTRACT
The article presents tips for dealing with cultural and natural resources in Alaska during a river trip. It is illegal to excavate, remove, or destroy artifacts, or to disturb archaeological or historical sites on federal or state lands. It is imperative that travelers not disturb archaeological sites or remove artifacts from their natural setting. Natural features deserve the same respect. Rangers at gates of the Arctic National Park showed they were serious about caring for their area in an incident from the early 1980s. They confiscated many caribou and moose antlers from recreationists.
