Our Annual Events
Wild Food Feast & Film Festival, April 2018
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.
Glennallen, April 14, American Legion Hall, 5:00 p.m.
Cordova, April 21, Pioneer Igloo, 6 p.m.
$10 at the door (kids under 5 are free), bring a dish to share and get in FREE.
Wild Harvest Feast, September 1, 2018
Help us celebrate the harvest with a wild foods dinner featuring fall coho salmon and locally harvested ingredients, delectable desserts and a silent auction showcasing handmade crafts and edible delights related to fungus and the fall harvest in Alaska.
All proceeds form the silent auction support the CRWP scholarship program for students living in the Copper River watershed.
This special evening event has become wildly popular with locals, and visiting sports fishermen and fungus tourists alike!
Tickets are $65 dollars per person and on sale now. Call 424-3334 to reserve your spot today!
