What We've Achieved FOR SPECIAL PLACES IN ALASKA

 

ARCTIC NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE

  • Seasons of Life and Land helped to defeat a 2003 measure that would have opened the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge up for extensive drilling. 

  • A grant from Lannan Foundation allowed Braided River to donate 10,000 copies of Seasons of Life and Land to libraries and indigenous communities across the country.

National PETROLEUM Reserve Alaska

  • Powered by the Campion Foundation, we distributed over 7,000 copies of our book, On Arctic Ground to advocacy groups to use strategically in their media and education campaigns.
  • Author Debbie Miller and other contributors to the book presented multimedia events across the USincluding Washington, D.C.—introducing audiences to this unique and environmentally rich public land.

TONGASS RAIN FOREST

  • Photographer Amy Gulick developed a permanent exhibit based on Salmon in the Trees for the Mendenhall Glacier Visitors Center in Alaska, interpreting the ecology of the Tongass for 400,000 visitors annually.
  •  Environmental groups who have used Salmon in the Trees include Alaska Wilderness League, Trout Unlimited, Southeast Alaska Conservation Council, and more.  U.S. Forest Service used Salmon in the Trees for education and outreach in Alaska and Washington, D.C.
