Description

Bering Land Bridge National Preserve encompasses a total area of approximately 2.7 million acres of land that is located on the northern Seward Peninsula in northwestern Alaska. The national preserve lies on the United States-Russia fishing boundary and about 42 miles from the Bering Strait on the western border of the preserve. 

Access to the park is only by small airplanes, small boats, or by snow vehicles, dog sleds or skis in the winter. The land where the national preserve sits was proclaimed a national monument (Bering Land Bridge National Monument), on December 1, 1978, before being established as a national preserve on December 2, 1980. 

Several attractions make the Bering Land Bridge National Monument a great place to visit. First, the preserve is abounded by paleontological and archeological resources. Additionally, the area has lots of native villages that offer a glimpse into how the local people lived their lives including how they did their reindeer herding. 

Secondly, the preserve is an attraction because it is a remnant of the land bridge t once connected North America to Asia over 13,000 years ago. Third, the preserve has geological attractions like lava flows and ash explosion craters that are very rare features in the Arctic. Fourth, the preserve is also home to large populations of bird species that nest in the area during certain times in their migratory calendar. 

Besides these attractions, the Bering Land Bridge National Monument is also a favorite place for visitors to enjoy recreational activities like fishing, hiking, coastal boating, camping, bird-watching, snowmobiling, wildlife viewing, hunting, and cross-country skiing. 

Visitors that have dogs can bring them to the national preserve but must make sure that their dogs always remain well-behaved. Additionally, dogs must always be leashed and kept away from restricted areas of the park including inside any park buildings.
