The Yukon–Charley Rivers National Preserve is located in east Central Alaska along the border with Canada. It encompasses 115 miles (185 km) of the 1,800-mile (3,000 km) Yukon River and the entire Charley River basin.Numerous rustic cabins and historic sites are located in the preserve. These are reminders of the importance of the Yukon River during the Klondike Gold Rush. Paleontological and archeological sites here add much to our knowledge of this environment thousands of years ago.Peregrine falcons nest in the high bluffs overlooking the river, while the rolling hills that make up the preserve are home to an abundant array of wildlife. Dominant trees are the Black Spruce and White Spruce. This general area of the Yukon catchment is the westernmost limit of the Black Spruce, Picea mariana.
