Kenai Fjords National Park

On the southeast side of the Kenai Peninsula, along the Gulf of Alaska, nearly 670,000 acres were designated as the Kenai Fjords National Park in 1980 as part of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act. Abundant wildlife thrives in these icy waters and dense forests. Evidence of the Ice Age can be seen everywhere; though, as the glaciers rapidly shrink, this is also where the effects of changing climates is also readily evident.
