The clouds scattered and the sun is shining bright in Cordova today! The Copper River Watershed Stewards have had amazing weather to explore the Copper River Delta, based out of the U.S. Forest Service research camp on Alaganik Slough. They were waiting for the tide to start rolling in yesterday evening to head back into town for showers and dinner.

One new skill they are learning is how to collect data using GIS-based programs. You can follow the Copper River Stewardship Program adventure daily by checking the dashboard on our website (click on the mapper and it will open in a new browser):

On Thursday, June 13th, join us at the Native Plant Garden near Odiak Pond in Cordova for a family-friendly event 10:30am-Noon as part of Alaska’s Invasive Species Awareness Week (AKISAW).

At 11am, we will feature a special “unveiling” of a new sign created by our former interns Mia Siebenmorgen and Samaya Faber. There will be fun games and activities for kids, and free native plant seeds and cheat sheets for how to handle Cordova’s most invasive plants, Orange Hawkweed and Reed Canarygrass.

There is a large patch of Orange Hawkweed nearby, and we will engage community members in helping to pop off all the flower tops (so they don’t go to seed and keep spreading!).
