ABSTRACT
The article presents tips for dealing with private lands during a river trip in Alaska. Even though a river may traverse a national park, refuge, or other protected lands, or be protected as a national wild and scenic river, the lands are not all publicly owned. Federal and state land management agencies have maps showing private lands. Lands surrounding villages are owned by Native corporations and permits may be required to use these areas. The general rule is to trespass only in an emergency.
