Military installations in Alaska face unique challenges. While spaces are vast, incompatible development in certain locations adjacent to bases and training areas threaten readiness. Additionally, climate related issues like permafrost thaw or wildfire, or unpredictable temperatures, pose an increasing risk to training and to nearby populations. This threat increases with incompatible development.
Compatible Lands Foundation is working with USAG Alaska to support and sustain the military mission and help facilitate future testing and training requirements through prevention, reduction, or elimination of incompatible land uses on properties adjacent to and/or in the vicinity of mission activities. CLF is also working with USAG Alaska to develop and implement wildland fire mitigation strategies.
