Nominate Your Copper Basin Watershed Hero!

Help us recognize those hardworking people who serve as a voice for our wild lands and waters.  You know the type, the ones who provide leadership and energy, inspire others, and work to maintain the livability of our watershed communities.  We’ll take nominations for a Copper Basin Watershed Hero until April 17, 2017, and make an award at the Glennallen Wild Food Feast on April 29.

Wild Food Feast & Film Festivals

In the spring, we invite our friends and neighbors in the watershed to gather for a celebration of the natural resources that define our communities, cultures and lifestyles.  At our Wild Food Feasts in Glennallen and Cordova we host a cook-off featuring dishes made with local wild ingredients, with prizes and bragging rights for the best dishes made with ingredients that flew, grew, walked or swam in the watershed. We also show a short film festival that includes pieces made by residents in the watershed.

Cordova, April 8, Pioneer Igloo, 6 p.m.

Glennallen, April 29, American Legion Hall, 5:00 p.m.

$10 at the door (kids under 5 are free), bring a dish to share and get in FREE.
