Since 1996, Alaska Quiet Rights Coalition has worked to protect natural soundscapes and quiet, human-powered recreation on Alaska's public lands.
While one concern of the Alaska Quiet Rights Coalition is conflict between non-motorized and motorized user groups on the state’s public lands, a greater impact likely occurs due to displacement. Displacement occurs when a quiet recreationist loses access to an area previously enjoyed, due to the presence of motorized recreationists whose activities degrade the experience.
Here are a few accounts from Alaskans who have been displaced from their favorite places or activities due to motorized recreational activities. If you have a similar experience in being displaced from a favorite recreational spot which you would like to share, go to Contact Us to submit a short description of your experience. The Alaska Quiet Rights Coalition board will have the final decision as to suitability for posting.
