Volunteer Projects

Stream Watch

Stream Watch, founded by the Chugach National Forest in 1994 and now run by several partner organizations, is a national award winning volunteer program that promotes river stewardship on two world-class sockeye salmon fisheries on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula –the Russian and Kenai Rivers. Trained Stream Watch volunteers have been protecting the Russian River and upper Kenai River for over 15 years resulting in a more sustainable fishery. Learn more

Each Fall, Chugach Children’s Forest participants helps Stream Watch at their end-of-season clean up event! Thanks to the support of the rafting company, Alaska Wildland Adventures, youth float downstream, docking along the way to pick up fishing wire, cigarette butts, and an array of other trash left along the banks of the Kenai River.
