The Float Coat Song

In Western Alaska, native peoples have always spent a lot of time on water the water. Whether they're harvesting traditional foods, working in commercial fisheries, or simply getting from place to place, these activities often involve open boats and are far from help in an emergency. Wearing a PFD is an important step in preventing drowning. The Kingikmiut Singers and Dancers of Anchorage are helping to increase awareness and usage of PFDs to Western Alaska's native communities. With sponsorship from the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium and the Alaska Office of Boating Safety, they created the Float Coat Song as a way to help educate young people and others to wearing PFDs.

Outdoor Survival Camp 2017

This past Friday, we completed our week-long, children’s Outdoor Survival Camp. It was a pleasure to see the enthusiasm that youngsters bring to the camp activities and to watch them learn skills that will help to keep them safe in their outdoor adventures. Each camper received a booklet with photos from the camp. Click through the gallery above to see the captions describing some of the learning activities. AMSEA’s Coral Pendell and Marian Allen, and Julia Tawney of the Sitka Conservation Society worked hard to make the camp a success. Thank you for a job well done! Many others helped this past week and the preceding weeks. First and foremost, thank you to the Sitka Conservation Society for
