Knowing that these concrete indicators of climate change are affecting Alaskans everyday, Inletkeeper made the trip to the Big Apple and joined the hordes of people in the streets of New York City for the People’s Climate March to help represent the front-line communities of Alaska and demand climate action now.
Last week Eric, Kaitlin and I had the privilege to spend a few days working and collaborating with some fantastic people. The Alaskans First Campaign hosted a Statewide Organizers retreat in Talkeetna from Septmeber 28-Oct 2 to bring organizers from Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley together.
Living year-round in Talkeetna I have the privilege of seeing the Susitna River every day. On a beautiful Sunday morning recently I was able to see a part of it that few can, even though it is at the heart of one of the most contentious energy projects in the state. I traveled by jet boat 60 miles upstream of Talkeetna to Devil’s Canyon, an area of the river that hosts Class 6 rapids.
