Help us Meet the Match! Matching Grant and Public Comment Periods
Double the Impact of Your Donation We are 3/4 of the way to meeting our Goal!
Help us reach our goal of $2000! So far, our supporters have donated $1375. We are SO Close! The Susitna River Watershed provides so much to those that call it home. Berries from its tundra slopes, fish from its rivers, and wild game in its forests. Each of us harvest from and enjoys this beautiful watershed of ours in different ways. Let's give back by conserving the Watershed's integrity! With many threats to the Susitna Watershed amplified during this spring season, we need YOUR help to protect it. What are the ways that you get out in the watershed? Do you hunt, fish, gather, grow? At the Susitna River Coalition, we are committed to maintaining the integrity of the watershed so that all of us can enjoy its bounty for generations to come. Give to your watershed and double your donation!

We are still taking answers on our West Susitna Access Road Survey. Have you taken it? We want to hear what questions you want answered, and how you get out in the watershed. There is even a spot for you to record your public comment so that we can submit it for you. What do you think about the West Susitna Access Road?
West Susitna Access Road & The Mat Su Borough Budget Meetings
There will be one more opportunity for public comment on the Matanuska Susitna Borough annual Budget on May 6 @ 6PM at Su Valley High in Talkeetna. Included in the proposed budget is $100,000 of Borough money to spend or be spent on the West Susitna Road. Why is AIDEA, with $400 million dollars available for spending, asking the Mat-Su Borough for $100,000 more dollars on a project that has the potential to turn into an expensive money sink of maintenance?
May 6 @ 6PM in Person at Su Valley High in Talkeetna Ways you can participate in the Assembly meeting: IN PERSON: Should you wish to attend in person, please adhere to a 6-foot distance between yourself and others as much as possible. IN WRITING: You can submit written comments to firstname.lastname@example.org Those who wish to observe the meeting may do so by the live stream video at Facebook.com/MatSuBorough.
