Our Annual Events
Wild Food Feast and Film Festival
Join the Copper River Watershed Project for the annual Wild Food Feast and Film Festival on Saturday, April 27, 6 p.m at the Pioneer Igloo in Cordova, Alaska. The Wild Food Feast is a celebration for all that the Copper River watershed has to offer – food for our pantries, and open spaces to feed the soul. We invite you to help celebrate the watershed harvest by becoming a sponsor.
We will host a cook-off featuring dishes made from local wild ingredients and invite you to bring a potluck dish featuring your kitchen creativity using fish, game, and berries from our backyard.
For evening entertainment we’ll show Alaska-theme movies, and we’ll award Watershed Hero recognition to someone who takes that extra step to keep our watershed healthy.
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. This year’s Wild Harvest Feast will be prepared by renowned Alaska Chef Laura Cole, owner and head chef at 229 Parks, Denali National Park & Preserve.
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!
