Why should you care?
We are at a time in our history of the US when politics, racism, and polarization dominate our national and collective minds and worldviews. Not to mention all the other clusters in the world these days. But. There is something else going on that we should be directing our attention to—Southeast Alaska and the Alaska salmon fisheries.
Alaska is the last great bastion of pristine wilderness in the US. However, threats from open mine pits are encroaching from the north in British Columbia potentially affecting the rivers, fishing industry, wildlife, land, people, and lifestyle of Southeast Alaska.
But don’t take my word for it. Attend Southeast Feast, July 23! Find out for yourself.
Because if you haven’t visited Southeast Alaska, I assure you, it is a spectacular astounding must-see destination. And the seafood? The. Best.
