Wild Food Feast & Film Fest Was Held April 12th In Glennallen

Katie John, of Mentasta, has been named this year's Watershed Hero by the Copper River Watershed Project. Katie John died last summer, and was known for her dedication to the Copper River, its salmon, and its history of giving to the upper Copper Valley. 

The Watershed Project held a special meeting on April 12th, where the award was announced.

Here's its pre-event promotional information:

The Copper River Watershed Project is presenting its annual 
Wild Food Feast & Film Festival on 
Saturday, April 12th at 5 pm at the Glennallen American Legion Hall. 
Admission is $5 -- or free, if you brought a dish.

Here's their press release:

Our annual Wild Food Feast is a cook-off unlike any other. If it grew, swam, walked or flew in the Copper River watershed, we want you to share it with the community! Bring out your favorite recipes or test new ones. There will be winners chosen for each category, but the real winners are everyone who gets to taste the amazing creations.

After dinner, we'll have our annual Wild Film Festival, a showcase of short films from our region and other places around Alaska. Included in this year's program will be a film made by our 2013 Copper River Stewardship Program students (tell any youth you know to apply for our 2014 Stewardship Program by March 18th!)

As always we'll be having our annual Silent Auction of amazing handmade items from around the region, the proceeds from which go to fund our Scholarship Program (which also has a deadline coming up April 4th!)

Also we're introducing a new segment to the event -- our Watershed Hero Award. Do you know someone who has done great things for the people, places, or wildlife of your part of the Copper Basin? Contact us and you can nominate them for recognition of their hard work!

Throughout the evening we'll be drawing for door prizes, and if you become a member or are already a member, you'll be entered in our exclusive Membership Drawing for a great big ticket prize!
