TOMBSTONE TERRITORIAL PARK
Did you know:
Conservation efforts began in 1972 when two sensitive sites were identified by scientists.
The Park was created in 2000, a legacy of the land settlement agreement with the Tr'ondek Hwech'in First Nation, with a mandate to preserve and enhance its "physical, biological, archaeological and cultural values."
The Park lies within the traditional territory of the Tr'ondek Hwech'in First Nation.
The Park is jointly administered by the territorial government and the Triondek Hwech'in First Nation.
The Park is named for Tombstone Mountain's resemblance to a grave marker.
Tombstone Territorial Park's 2,200 km2 protect a unique wilderness of rugged peaks, permafrost landforms and abundant wildlife.
The park is a legacy of the Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in land claim agreement and lies within their traditional territory.
The concentration of wide ecological niches has resulted in a diverse collection of flora and fauna uncommon at this latitude.
