Detailed Description

The Teshekpuk Lake region was designated as a Special Area in 1977 by the Secretary of the Interior, Cecil Andrus. The map shows the approximate boundary of the Special Area in 2008, 2013, and 2020. Due to differences in reporting procedures prior to 2000, the boundaries of Teshekpuk Lake Special Area were not well defined and therefore, are not shown on this map.
