NORTH YUKON PLANNING REGION:
LMU 1: Van Tat K’atr’anahtii (Old Crow Flats) Special Management Area
Sub-unit #1C: Old Crow Flats West
Biophysical Setting (LMU 1)
Old Crow Flats West and East are managed under the Old Crow Flats Management Plan (Yukon Department of Environment and Vuntut Gwitchin Government, 2006). A detailed description of the ecological, cultural and economic values of Old Crow Flats East and West is contained in the management plan and Gray and Alt (2001). These units are within the Old Crow Flats SMA but unlike LMU #1B, are not characterized by extensive lake and wetland complexes. They are withdrawn from land disposition and exploration activities until 2026, at which time their Protected Area status will be re-evaluated.
