Three hours of fish, fun and music to celebrate and protect Bristol Bay - Streamed to your habitats
Join us on Sunday, August 2nd from 4-7 pm for Salmonfest: Streaming for Bristol Bay: Three hours of fish, fun and music to celebrate and protect Bristol Bay - streamed to your habitats. https://www.facebook.com/inletkeeper/videos/623597401869786/
While we’ve pressed pause on our annual migration to Ninilchik for Salmonfest, the government continues to fast-forward permitting the Pebble Mine. The final environmental impact study has been released and a U.S Army Corps of Engineers permit decision is expected by the end of the summer. It is critical that we continue to stand with Bristol Bay and make our opposition to Pebble Mine heard before this federal permit is finalized.
Celebrate Bristol Bay and Alaska’s salmon-centric lifestyle with some of your favorite Salmonfest artists and hear from salmon champions fighting to protect the world’s greatest remaining salmon stronghold. This event will be live streamed on Facebook. Your generous donations will go to United Tribes of Bristol Bay. RSVP to be entered into a raffle to win a ticket to next year’s festival.
Salmonfest, originally Salmonstock, was born 10 years ago to galvanize salmon lovers everywhere into action to protect Bristol Bay and fight the Pebble Mine. In this critical moment, it is only right that we pick up the mic and keep going. Let's let the music fill our bellies with salmon joy and the words and stories of salmon champions embolden our hearts to protect what we love. The show must go on!
This event is hosted by Salmonfest, Cook Inletkeeper, Commercial Fishermen for Bristol Bay, SalmonState, and United Tribes of Bristol Bay.
