Interests and Vision Identification

Having considered the data of Stage 1 – Information Gathering, the Steering Committee will work to develop a broad vision for the park...

What do we want Kusawa Park to be, 50 years from now?


This vision will respect the Objectives set out for the park in the First Nations final agreements and be responsive to the park’s legislative designation.

The Steering Committee will draft a vision of Kusawa Park for review, complete with an explanation of why such a vision seems important, and what kind of legislative and management structures would be needed to achieve the vision.

Public Input

You will be asked to comment on the draft vision. Does it reflect what you want to see in the future of Kusawa Park? What would you change, and why? Does the vision’s management structure seem appropriate? What specific aspects of the vision might need further analysis and decisions, and how could they be addressed by the plan?

Look and listen for advertising and announcements in newspapers and on radio stations, inviting public comment. Check this website regularly for updates on the best opportunities for Public Input.

Stage 6:
Recommended Management Plan

What does this mean?

Wells did have one bit of good fortune. He annexed to his party a Chilkat Indian known sometimes as “Indiank” but more frequently as “Schwatka,” a name he had adopted after accompanying Lieut. Schwatka down the Yukon in 1883. “Schwatka” had then accompanied the lieutenant to San Francisco where he had some startling experiences and returned to his village as a sort of double-sided wise man, one who had been allowed a glimpse of a fabulous wonderland. He was a fine fellow with a broad smile; a man who knew what had to be done, and did it. His knowledge of canoeing, he woodcraft, and his willingness to perform every little duty, made him invaluable.
