Copper River Stewardship Program is a 10-day exploration of the entire watershed with a group of youth from communities all over the watershed. We will learn about ecology, resource management, and communication while travelling via a wide variety of means as we explore the Copper River Watershed and Prince William Sound. A highlight will be two days on a sailboat crossing the sound and learning about the legacy of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. We'll also explore the interior Boreal Forest and the Temperate Rainforest, and learn about a wide variety of issues affecting the watershed.
