    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Starting Friday, interested businesses can submit proposals to provide guided recreation services at the Tongass National Forest’s Pack Creek Bear Viewing Area for the dates of April 1 to July 4, and August 26 to September 30, 2023.

    The prospectus (an announcement soliciting competitive applications) will be available online for submission of proposals on March 17, 2023, closing on May 3, 2023. The Pack Creek Bear Viewing Area is located within the Admiralty Island National Monument and part of the Kootznoowoo Wilderness.

    The Pack Creek Bear Viewing Area is cooperatively managed by the USDA Forest Service and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to provide bear viewing opportunities with minimal impact to brown bears.  The area is located on Admiralty Island about 40 miles south of Juneau, AK. There are no developed conveniences (e.g., restrooms, docks, shelters, etc.) and there is no road to Pack Creek; access is via floatplane or boat.
