Make a Difference!
Started in 1994 by a group of concerned citizens and the Chugach National Forest, this award winning volunteer program grew from a grassroots collective of 10 to a volunteer movement of 180+ volunteers who are making a difference for rivers on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula.
Dedicated volunteers of all ages and interests receive training and supplies, and even access to free campsites. Volunteers educate the public on river stewardship and complete hands-on river restoration projects projects on the Kasilof, Kenai and Russian Rivers.
Be the change! With a range of volunteer opportunities 7-days a week Jun-Sep, there is an opportunity for everyone.
Throughout the summer, individuals and groups of all ages and interests can make a difference through a one day project. Stewards help with easy to moderate projects including:
- River clean-up
- Recycle fishing line
- Remove fish barriers
- Mend fencing
- Use trees to stop erosion
- Other protection efforts
Be the change! Spend a few hours making a huge impact on local rivers. Training and supplies are provided for a great day in the great outdoors. This opportunity is great for individuals, families, scout groups, clubs and businesses.
Stream Watch Ambassadors are outfitted with the knowledge and supplies to walk local rivers sharing information and enthusiasm to protect them. All of the training, supplies and on-going support are provided for a successful Stream Watch season.
Not from the area? Volunteer campsites are available on a first come, first served basis.
Be the change! Become a Stream Watch Ambassador! Ambassadors must be 16 years of age or older and be interested in making a difference on local rivers. Ambassadors are required to attend an orientation and commit to a minimum of 24 hours on the river, June through September.
