The Department of Natural Resources has listed 472 parcels of land available for sale through the state’s annual sealed-bid auction, which starts March 20.

This year’s offering includes parcels ranging from Southeast Alaska coastline to Interior river corridors. Some lots are on the road system or close to communities; while others are in remote, rural locations.

Ten parcels are on Prince of Wales Island, in the Whale Pass and Clark Bay areas. Other Southeast Alaska parcels are listed near Petersburg and in Freshwater Bay southwest of Juneau.

Sealed bids from Alaska residents will be accepted March 20 through July 10. Brochures describing the parcels and how to participate in the auction are available at www.dnr.alaska.gov. Go to the “Online Services” tab and scroll down to “Purchase Land.”
