Wild Salmon Day Is Feb. 26th In Alaska.

The Alaska Youth for Environmental Action (AYEA) recently declared February 26th as statewide Wild Salmon Day. To celebrate this new holiday, salmon-centric events are happening all across the state. Click here for a map of currently planned activities.

AMCC is partnering with AYEA and the Renewable Resources Foundation to show our love of salmon by marching in Anchorage‘s Fur Rondy parade.

We need volunteers to help make costumes, decorate a float, and march with us dressed as salmon, fishermen, and other representations of the diverse and vibrant ecosystem of Bristol Bay and the economies and ways of life that it supports.

We envision a large group of people dressed as schooling salmon, subsistence, commercial, and sport fishermen, bears, eagles, and anything else that is part of the rich fabric of Bristol Bay.

The parade lasts from approximately 10:30 to 11:30 am on Saturday February 26th. There will be a free salmon barbecue for volunteers

after the festivities are over. Contact Shannon Kuhn (shannon “at” ayea.org) to get involved!
