The specific objective of this project is to conduct a harvest assessment of the residents of Circle, Central, Eagle, and Eagle Village. The project will be conducted by specialists from Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), Division of Subsistence, in collaboration with National Park Service (NPS) staff. The collected information will help to inform Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve, State of Alaska, and Federal Subsistence Board decisions regarding resource management. STATEMENT OF JOINT OBJECTIVES/PROJECT MANAGEMENT PLAN Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve (YUCH) and the Alaska Regional Office of the NPS require the production of a project documenting wild resource use and economic activities among residents of the Yukon-Charley region. The objective is to conduct a harvest assessment of Circle, Central, Eagle, and Eagle Village residents, contingent upon community approval. This project involves the following activities: a. After collaboration on the development of the questionnaire, ADF&G and NPS will administer a survey to all households in the affiliated communities, documenting households⿿ subsistence harvests, production and distribution networks, and economic activities. b. ADF&G will code the harvest survey responses, prepare data for analysis, and provide the NPS with integrated SPSS files of the survey results. The ADF&G will conduct preliminary analysis of SPSS data, including comparisons of demography, income and harvest levels over time and complete cross-sectional analysis on the influence of household composition, income, employment, ethnicity and so forth on harvest and distributional patterns; and will enter the data in the ADF&G Community Subsistence Information System. c. ADF&G and NPS will collaborate in writing a technical report that presents a preliminary analysis of the harvest survey and includes the social, economic, and regional contexts for the community findings. RECIPIENT INVOLVEMENT ADF&G will collaborate with NPS in this project by conducting numerous tasks, including the following: (a) holding meetings to introduce the project to the study communities, (b) creating the survey form and maps for data collection, (c) providing local researchers with training in survey methodology and administration, (d) conducting the harvest survey research in the selected communities in cooperation with NPS, (e) coding survey forms, (f) entering survey data into a computer database, (g) cleaning SPSS data with wild code checks, (h) providing NPS with two types of SPSS files as a product of the harvest survey, (i) producing descriptive statistics on the SPSS database, (j) convening a community meeting to review draft study findings, (k) producing a project report, and (l) entering harvest survey results in the Community Subsistence Information System. NATIONAL PARK SERVICE INVOLVEMENT Substantial involvement on the part of the National Park Service is anticipated for the successful completion of the objectives to be funded by this award. In particular, the National Park Service will be responsible for the following: meeting with the federally recognized tribal councils in each community to seek their support for the project, collaborating with the cooperator on survey development, obtaining OMB approval for the survey, assisting with survey interviews, and assisting with report writing.
