Chuitna RiverProtect the Chuitna River

Speak out for the Chuitna River by telling Governor Walker and the DNR how important it is to protect the Chuitna watershed and the valuable salmon habitat it provides.

The State of Alaska announced February 23rd that they will be deciding whether water should be left in the Chuitna River for salmon, or diverted to allow an outside mining company to completely destroy the river for a coal mine.

This is a huge precedent; never before has the State of Alaska allowed mining directly through a salmon stream and we need to make sure they never do!  The State has a simple choice, keep water in the stream for salmon or give 100% of it to an Outside company that will use it to strip mine for coal that will be sent to Asia.
