Stream Watch

Make a Difference!

Started in 1994 by a group of anglers, this award winning volunteer program is for those who want to make a difference for the community, rivers, and salmon on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula.

Stream Watch volunteers receive training and supplies, and even access to free campsites, in return for their service. Volunteers educate the public on river stewardship and complete hands-on river restoration projects projects on the Kasilof River, Kenai River, and Russian River.

Be the change! With volunteer opportunities everyday from June through September, there are possibilites for everyone with Stream Watch.

Ambassadors

Ambassadors are everyday people making an extraordinary difference!

Stream Watch Ambassadors are outfitted with the knowledge and supplies to walk local rivers sharing information and enthusiasm to protect them.  Stream Watch staff provide training, supplies and on-going support  for Ambassadors who are the heart and soul of Stream Watch’s ongoing success protecting for the rivers of the Kenai Peninsula. Ambassadors participate in a pre-season orientation and commit to a minimum of 24 hours on the river, June through September.

Not from the area? Campsites are available for Ambassadors on a first come, first served basis.
