    The Federal Bureau of Land Management, along with the National Parks Service, Forest Service, and U-S Fish & Wildlife Service, are collaborating on the survey of transportation and access.

    Researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks will administer the survey all summer to visitors to national parks, forests, refuges, and other public lands. a follow-up survey will ask about their experience.

    The results will contribute to a long-term transportation plan for federal lands in Alaska next year.

    Alaska is the first state to use this type of joint survey. others are planned in federal land management areas nationwide.
