Why special
The State of Alaska manages state land for multiple use. Some state lands such as refuges and state parks are designated for specific management purposes by the Legislature. Other lands are acquired or managed for special purposes as a result of legal settlements, grant funded acquisitions, donations, or other programs using legislatively appropriated funds. These lands provide important recreation, access, and resource management opportunities for Alaska. These lands are referred to as Other State Lands (OSL) or Limited State Holdings (LSH).

The mapping application linked to this web page provides a means of identifying and learning more about these parcels. Lands that can be identified through this web site include those associated with the following programs:

Exxon Valdez Oil Spill - EVOS, Civil and Criminal Settlement Funds (EVOS)(ADNR)
Forest Legacy Program - FL (USFS)(ADNR)
National Coastal Wetlands Grant Program - NCW (USFWS)(ADNR)
Land and Water Conservation Fund - LWCF (NPS)(ADNR)

North American Wetlands Conservation Act - NAWCA (USFWS)
Fish and Wildlife Service Recovery Land Grant - RLG (USFWS)
Recreational Trails Program - RTG (ADNR)
