Iditarod Trail Alliance Honored

The five-year commemoration of the historic Iditarod Trail was honored with a Partners in Conservation award by the U.S. Department of the Interior last month.Since January 2008, the Iditarod National Historic Trail Centennial Partnership led by the Iditarod Historic Trail Alliance has implemented a public-private commemoration of the trail’s centennial, which included establishment of easements on 1,600 miles of the trail, developed six new public safety cabins and stabilized two historic safety cabins, upgraded 275 miles of trail and established a trail-based continuing education program for Alaskan teachers that reached over 2,000 students. Both the partnership and the alliance include federal and state agencies, businesses and local groups along the trail.Read more here:
