Alaska Brief Newsletter – September 2016
Trustees is hosting two free events in September in Alaska.
If you live in the Greater Fairbanks area, we hope you can join us tomorrow night at the Venue. I’ll be there along with Senior Staff Attorney Brook Brisson and Board member Chase Hensel. The event is co-hosted with the Northern Alaska Environmental Center to celebrate conservation in Alaska.
WHEN: Tuesday, September 13th ¦ 5:30-7:30 PM
WHERE: Venue, 514 Second Avenue, Fairbanks, AK 99701
We’ll continue celebrating conservation in Alaska at our Anchorage event September 29th at The Red Chair Cafe. Please join our Board and staff for an evening celebrating our wins for Wishbone Hill, Chuitna Citizens Coalition, our continued work to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and Bristol Bay and other threatened areas of Alaska.
WHEN: Thursday, September 29th ¦ 5:00-8:30 PM
WHERE: The Red Chair Cafe, 337 E Fourth Avenue, Anchorage, AK 99501
RSVPs for the Anchorage event are appreciated (but not required) by September 22nd. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 907.433.2006.
I hope to see you at one or both events!
PS: Next month we’ll be sending the Alaska Brief monthly e-newsletter from a different platform. We are updating our donor database and migrating to Constant Contact. Please add my email address to your safe senders list to ensure you don’t have problems continuing to receive the news from Trustees for Alaska.
Staff Attorney Katie Strong shares why national parks are important to her as the nation celebrated the National Park System’s centennial on August 25, 2016.
This summer BLM released its Eastern Interior plan, which includes protections for important natural areas and cultural values.
Please join us in welcoming Marie Kyle to Trustees. She’ll be with us for the fall, helping the attorneys protect and defend Alaska’s wild lands, waters, wildlife, and people.
Trustees extends its appreciation to Christian Tucker, Jaclyn Brass, and Esack Grueskin for their work this summer. Two of the three shared their stories.
