Dene stories, environmental protection focus of new Nahanni National Park action plan; CBC

Nahanni National Park Reserve has a new management plan for the first time in a decade. The plan, tabled in the House of Commons last Friday, includes a long list of recommendations for how to include Dene people in all aspects of park stewardship, with the goal of protecting the park from ongoing climate change-related threats. Parks Canada, along with the Dehcho First Nations and Nahanni Butte, N.W.T., worked together on the plan. The 30,050-square-kilometre park extends down the South Nahanni River along the N.W.T.-Yukon border, and ends at the river’s confluence with the Liard River near Nahanni Butte, N.W.T.
