First round of Park Service program only includes one Alaskan park

The first round of projects in the National Park Service’s Centennial Challenge program were announced today — but it includes only one project among Alaska’s parklands. The recipient is Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. The Park Service and the Propane Education and Resource Council are chipping in $125,000 each to put in a new power generation system at the Kennecott Mine National Historic Landmark, where deteriorating buildings are being stabilized.
