Mount McKinley National Park was established in 1917 to protect its large mammals, not because of majestic Mt. McKinley. In 1980, the boundary was expanded to include both the Denali caribou herds wintering and calving ground and the entire Mt. McKinley massif. This more than tripled the size of the park, and was renamed Denali National Park and Preserve. It was also designated an International Biosphere Reserve significant for the potential for sub-arctic ecosystem research.
Denali is an Athabascan word meaning "The High One". The mountain is officially named Mt. McKinley but
is also referred to as Denali. Mt. McKinley is the highest peak in North America at 20,320 feet. It creates its
own weather system and is often covered in clouds. Mt. McKinley is only visible about 1/3 of the time, so
visitors to the park only have about a 30% chance of viewing Mt. McKinley.
Denali is one of the greatest wildlife viewing areas in the world. Visitors have a chance of seeing grizzly
bears, caribou, moose, Dall sheep, foxes, and wolves. Many smaller animals also inhabit the park such as
arctic ground squirrels, hoary marmots, pikas, snowshoe hares, and beavers. For those interested in bird
watching, there are a variety of birds that migrate to the park for the summer. The list includes arctic tern,
