New Season of Wildlife Wednesdays in Juneau, coming soon!

The dedicated folks at the Southeast Alaska Chapter of AWA have been working hard once again to bring about another season of the very popular Wildlife Wednesdays presentations. The 2018-2019 season begins on October 3, and continues through March 6th, on the first Wednesday of each month. Although the schedule does sometimes change a bit, here is how it looks now. If you live in the Juneau area, or plan to visit on any of these dates, please join us!

All presentations are free and open to the public. There will be posters around town with details of each one, as well as information on this web site.

 

Tell Senator Murkowski that we want salmon stream protections today

We are passing this on from our friends at Alaska Wilderness League.

Southeast Alaskans have been working together for years to chart a new course for the Tongass National Forest – one that supports the region’s economy and the region’s unique quality of life.  In less than a few months, this work will be complete… unless Senator Murkowski succeeds at delaying this great progress.

Murkowski is attempting to amend a very popular bill – one that would better fund the fighting of wildfires – with language that would stop the adoption of the new management plan developed by a diverse set of stakeholders including – the timber industry, government officials, and conservationists.
