We believe the Copper River watershed can have a vibrant, healthy future.
Have you heard?
Adopt-a-Fry Fundraising Campaign is back!
Adopt-a-Fry supports watershed education opportunities for students in the Copper River watershed.
Your donation helps us reach all students in the Copper River watershed throughout their school years and connects them with salmon, their watershed neighbors, and gives them an opportunity to understand their role in helping sustain the health of the Copper River and its resources, including salmon, into the future!
For every $25 donated to the fundraiser, we will send you or your special someone a sustainably sourced wooden Coho Salmon fry ornament, a NEW wooden sticker, and a certificate to commemorate the fry adoption! Plus, you will be added to our exclusive email list to receive updates on the fry’s development over the school year, including live footage from our salmon tank cams.
Students in Cordova went out on a gorgeous day in mid-October for the first egg take of the season through our Salmon in the Classroom Program. It was a success! Over a dozen kids in chest waders, most of them for the first time, helped to seine a couple of adults as part of the process.
Thank you, Prince William Sound Science Center, Prince William Sound Aquaculture Corporation, and super volunteers Tommy and Ken for your help!!

CRWP staff members Kate and Colleen and CRWP board member Lishaw had a great time hosting the Wild Food Feast in Kenny Lake in October. Winning dishes included a beautiful kale salad full of fresh garden veggies, seafood chowder, halibut ceviche, merry moose (a crock pot full of moose and deliciously flavored veggies), and grouse cordon bleu. The evening was capped off with a celebration of 25 years, complete with a culvert cake!
Thanks to our super volunteers Sarah, Mary Jane, Ronnie, Hannah, Sarah, Robin, and Diane, who helped make the event fun for all!
