Executive Director Recommendation: Fund

Executive Director Comments: This project will fund the Alaska Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to complete in FY 02 acquisitions that are in progress in FY 01. In FY 02, additional habitat protection activity will occur under a grant to The Nature Conservancy and The Conservation Fund approved by the Trustee Council in January 2001. The Council's resolution on the grant identified specific support activities that will continue to be conducted by the land managing agencies (e.g., appraisal review, title review, hazardous materials inspection, and NEPA compliance), and the costs of those activities will also be funded through this project. However, parcels to be purchased under the grant, and agency costs associated with those parcels, have not yet been identified. The Council may be asked to approve these additional costs later in FY 02.
