Inletkeeper is spearheading the development of an online food hub business for the Kenai Peninsula to increase food security, decrease food miles, fight climate change and strengthen our local communities.
Recent mine waste accidents, which have occurred while the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was on site working, have resulted in a misleading game of finger pointing; but those who always rail against the “government” need to reconsider who the finger should be pointed at.
The Alaska Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recently issued a decision on applications filed by the Chuitna Citizens Coalition (CCC) to reserve water for salmon in Middle Creek, a tributary of the Chuitna River in Upper Cook Inlet. Inletkeeper and its partners have been working for more than a decade to protect the Chuitna watershed, because PacRim Coal wants to develop a large-scale coal strip that would be the first project in Alaska history to completely remove a wild salmon stream.
This fall Cook Inletkeeper will be bringing the 2015 Wild & Scenic Film Festival to four locations throughout the watershed. Join us in Anchorage, Homer, Kenai or Talkeetna.
