Agency, Tribal, and Conservation Leaders Working Towards Collaborative Land Stewardship in Alaska

Tuesday, December 6, Noon – 1:30 PM AKT

Please join Alaska Conservation Foundation as we host a discussion about how leaders representing agencies, tribes, and conservation organizations are coming together to think collaboratively about land stewardship efforts in Alaska.

Hear from: Danielle Stickman, Alaska State Deputy Director, The Wilderness Society; Leanna Heffner, Northwest Boreal Partnership Director, Northern Latitude Partnerships; Mary Hostetter, Tribal Steward, Igiugig Village Council; Adrienne Lindholm, Alaska Wilderness Program Coordinator, National Park Service; and Eva Dawn Burk, Executive Director Tlaa Deneldel Community Group. 

Specifically, the speakers will discuss the Indigenous Land Stewardship: Creating Meaningful Collaborations across Alaska course, which is part of the Indigenous collaborations program at Alaska Pacific University, Alaska Venture Fund’s Indigenous learning exchange program, the start of a Lake Iliamna Indigenous Guardians Program, how the National Park Service is reimagining the concept of wilderness in a more inclusive way, and the exploration of potential partnerships for capacity building that leads to Indigenous land stewardship in the Nenana region. 

Alaska Conservation Foundation would like to thank our partners: Alaska Venture Fund, National Park Service, Alaska Pacific University, Tribal Village of Igiugig, Tlaa Deneldel Community Group, and The Wilderness Society.
