Abstract: Under the provisions of The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA), subsistence harvests by local rural residents are considered to be the priority consumptive use of park resources. This collection gathers information on subsistence harvest patterns and the impact of rural economy from resident zone communities associated with Alaskan parks, preserves, and monuments. The NPS is seeking an extension to continue to survey Alaska residents who customarily and traditionally engage in subsistence uses within a national park, preserve, or monument. In 2017, the collection was reinstated and increased the scope of inquiry to include the following Alaskan National Parks, Preserves, and Monuments: • Aniakchak National Monument (ANIA), • Bering Land Bridge National Preserve (BELA), • Cape Krusenstern National Monument (CAKR), • Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve (GAAR), • Kobuk Valley National Park (KOVA), • Noatak National Preserve (NOAT), • Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve (WRST) and Estimated annual respondents Activity Community Harvest Assessments for Alaskan National Parks, Preserves, and Monuments (all communities): Individuals/Households ............................................................................... Community Harvest Assessments for Alaskan National Parks, Preserves, and Monuments (non-response script and survey): Individuals/Households ............................................................................... Totals: .................................................................................................. 64337 • Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve (YUCH). This survey is conducted through inperson interviews. A facilitator collects information about harvests, uses, and sharing of subsistence resources. Search and harvest areas are also mapped over the course of the interview. The information from this collection will be used by the NPS, the Federal Subsistence Board, the State of Alaska, and local/regional advisory councils in making recommendations and informing decisions regarding seasons and harvest limits of fish, wildlife, and plants in the region which communities have customarily and traditionally used. Title of Collection: Community Harvest Assessments for Alaskan National Parks, Preserves, and Monuments. OMB Control Number: 1024–0262. Form Number: None.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1 64338 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 225 / Thursday, November 21, 2019 / Notices In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. We are soliciting comments on the proposed ICR that is described below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper functions of the NPS; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the NPS enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the NPS minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology.

Abstract: The National Park Service Organic Act, 54 U.S.C. 100101(a) et seq., requires that the NPS preserve national parks for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. Additionally, NPS regulations codified in 36 CFR 1–7, 12 and 13, are designated to implement statutory mandates that provide for resource protection and public enjoyment. In order to monitor resources and wildlife in the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve (GLBA) and to enhance the safety of future visitors, the park monitors all sightings and interactions by visitors with bears. Observations and interactions by visitors are recorded using two forms: NPS 10–405, ‘‘Tatshenshini—Alsek River Bear Report’’ and 10–406, ‘‘Bear Information Management Report.’’ The bear sighting and encounter reporting forms are an extension of our statutory SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:41 Nov 20, 2019 Jkt 250001 authority and responsibility to protect the park areas we administer and to manage the public use thereof. Bear sighting data provides the park with important data used to determine bear movements, habitat use, and species distribution. This information can be used in backcountry management and planning, field research planning, and educational outreach for visitors. Bear-human interaction data is vital to understand how bears respond to people, detecting changes in bear behavior, and identifying potential areas of high bear-human conflict. Obtaining immediate information on bear-human conflicts allows managers to respond promptly to mitigate further conflicts. Proactive mitigation includes notifying other backcountry users, issuing advisories or recommendations, or issuing closures to prevent further conflicts and maintain public safety. Additionally, managers may respond to reports of bear-human conflict with bear management techniques such as hazing or aversive conditioning. Obtaining current accurate information on bear sightings and interactions is essential for public safety and to effectively manage bears and people to minimize conflicts. Summary statistics (without personal information) may be generated to examine long-term trends in types and locations of bear-human interactions. The submission of NPS Form 10–405 is voluntary upon exiting the park backcountry and is used to collect information regarding bear sightings within GLBA. The collection and timeliness of the data collection is critical for the NPS’ ability to enhance the safety of future visitors and to protect the bear population at the park. Information collected via NPS Form 10– 405 includes: • Group name; • Take-out date; • Whether visitor encountered dirty campsites left by previous users or observe unsafe or inappropriate behavior by other groups; and • Detailed information for each sighting documented on the form, to include: Æ Date/time; Æ Species type Æ Total number of bears seen together (for each sighting); Æ Bear unit type; Æ Estimation of distance between visitor and bear(s); Æ Whether the bear was aware of the group; Æ Bear reaction to group; Æ Activity of group; Æ Number of observers; and Æ Location description/campsite name/GPS position/other comments.

The collection and timeliness of data concerning bearhuman contact is critical for the NPS’ ability to enhance the safety of future visitors and to protect the bear population at the park. Information collected via NPS Form 10–406 includes: • Name and phone number of the primary person involved in the interaction; • Group type: park visitor, concession employee, contractor, researcher, NPS employee, or other; • Number of people who encountered the bear; • Corresponding sighting number on NPS Form 10–405; Location 1–28 (Backcountry vs. Developed Area A and B); • Types of vegetation in area of encounter; • The bear’s activity when it was first observed; • The group’s activity prior to seeing the bear; • The bear’s initial and subsequent reaction to the group; • Group’s response to bear’s reaction; • Group’s distance to the bear; • Whether food was present, and if so, if it was eaten by the bear; • Whether property was damaged; • Detailed description of the interaction; • Detailed description of the bear, to include color, markings, scars, tags, etc.; • Date, time, and duration of encounter; • Exact location of encounter documented on map provided by GLBA, to include the latitude/longitude; • Where did the individual learn about how to behave while in bear country; and • Whether visitor encountered dirty campsites left by previous users or observe unsafe or inappropriate behavior by other groups.

Information collected via NPS Form 10-405 includes:
     Group name;

     Whether visitor encountered dirty campsites left by 
previous users or observe unsafe or inappropriate behavior by other 
groups; and
     Detailed information for each sighting documented on the

    Submission of a completed NPS Form 10-406 is voluntary when a bear 
enters camp, approaches the group, damages gear, obtains food, and/or 
acts in an aggressive or threatening manner towards the group. The

the interaction;
     Group type: park visitor, concession employee, contractor, 
researcher, NPS employee, or other;
     Number of people who encountered the bear;
