Project Title & Description
Copper River Watershed: Watershed Stewardship Campaign
The Watershed Stewardship campaign will promote the health of the Copper River Watershed by educating residents and visitors about the watershed. The campaign will use a multi-faceted approach including school year field trips with elementary and high school students, summer camp field trips, educational activities at community festivals, engaging community members in citizen science monitoring programs and bringing together community partners to create educational signage on watershed ecosystems to display throughout the watershed. The goal is to get the community and visitors to the area to think about a watershed as an entire interrelated ecosystem, rather than as separate independent rivers, streams and lakes. The project will address community stewardship and career development priorities.
