ASRC lands are not open for commercial or private (non-North Slope resident) recreational activities. Any commercial recreational activities to include guided hunting, hiking, rafting and videography/photography conducted within the North Slope Borough (NSB) are regulated by the NSB Planning Department under Title 19 (19.40.070) and will require a permit. In addition, the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service and the State of Alaska also require permits for operating on public lands adjacent to ASRC property.
ASRC works closely with local, state and federal agencies to ensure proper compliance of area regulations. It is the users responsibility to obtain the proper permissions and permits to access these areas.
