Midway down the wild and roadless Alaska Peninsula lies one of the Nation's most fascinating recent volcanic features. Aniakchak is a 6-mile-wide, 2,000-foot-deep caldera formed by the collapse of a 7,000-foot mountain. Lying inland in a region of frequent clouds and stormy weather, Aniakchak remained unknown to all but native inhabitants until the 1920s.
Inventories have been completed for birds, fish, and vascular plants in Aniakchak. Because of its remote location and horrible weather, monitoring activities in Aniakchak are limited.
