An engaged Alaskan democracy

Chuck Gilbert

Chuck moved to Alaska from California for adventure on April Fool’s Day in 1974 and never left.  After working several months on a variety of odd jobs he was hired by the National Park Service to help develop proposals for new park areas in Alaska, that culminated in passage of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act in 1980.  He then became a planner, helping determine how the new parks would be managed.  In 1986 he moved into the Lands Division, working on multiple lands issues—land exchanges, land acquisition, rights of way, title navigability, etc.  He ended his long career with the NPS in 2016 at Team Leader of the Lands Division.  Chuck has a great appreciation for the people and wonders of Alaska, and wants to work through ACG to make Alaska the best it can be.
