We're excited to announce Ava Earl will be joining the Wild Salmon Day festivities with some great tunes!

Singer-songwriter Ava Earl from Girdwood has checked off many life dreams - opening for Maggie Rogers, playing music festival main stages, getting recruited to run track at Northwestern University, and releasing multiple albums.

Fantastic Speakers

We're excited to announce one of our event speakers, Jackie Arnaciar Boyer - Campaign and Policy Director at Native Peoples Action and Native Peoples Action Community Fund.

Jackie started policy work right after high school at the age of 19, working in both rural and urban legislative offices in Juneau for over 5 years. It is from her life and work experience that her love and passion for public policy and the advancement of Indigenous leadership in those roles emerged – she believes the work NPA does is crucial to ensuring that advancement continues and thrives.


Be sure to come hungry as the Salmon HookUp Truck will be on site with fresh, local Cook Inlet Salmon caught and cooked the right way. Leave satiated both with knowing you helped protect salmon for generations to come as well as their tasty food!


Wild Salmon Day Fairbanks - August 14
2 pm to 5 pm at Tanana Lakes Recreation Area

Join us for Fairbanks' 3rd Wild Salmon Day Celebration at the Tanana Lakes Recreation Pavilion at the end of South Cushman. This is a free, family-friendly community picnic where we talk salmon, eat salmon, and commit to protecting salmon. We'll have live music, singing, drumming, storytelling, tables and activities to join in from your local community organizations. And of course, we'll have free salmon and food!

**We are requiring masks for this event. The BA 5 variant is not nice, and we must keep each other safe. Masks on when you're not eating and drinking. Otherwise, you know the drill.**

Thanks to our partners Tanana Valley Watershed Association, Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition, Native Movement, Northern Center, and the Alaska Native Education Department for joining and helping us put on this event!
