We believe the Copper River watershed can have a vibrant, healthy future.
Our Programs Making a Difference
We have completed a variety of habitat restoration & monitoring projects throughout the Copper River watershed to improve fish passage, re-vegetate and stabilize habitats for spawning and rearing salmon, assess water quality and identify salmon habitat for listing in the Alaska Department of Fish & Game’s Andaromous Waters Catalog.
CRWP programs take science learning outside for kids from grades K – 12. We lead field trips and classroom sessions on aquatic habitat, stormwater pollution, the salmon lifecycle, and watershed science. Students also participate in raising salmon fry from eggs in a classroom tank and releasing the fry come spring.
The Copper River watershed’s remote communities have much to offer! From the Copper River delta to the Wild and Scenic Gulkana River to North America’s largest World Heritage site in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, visitors are encouraged to explore the watershed’s unique geography and rich history.
