The Arctic Rivers Summit is scheduled to take place at the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage, Alaska, March 29-31, 2022. The Summit will be an in-person workshop to discuss the current and potential future states of Alaskan and Yukon rivers and fish and how we can adapt. It will bring together up to 150 Tribal and First Nation leaders, community members, managers, and knowledge holders and academic, Indigenous, federal, state, and provincial researchers, non-governmental organizations, and others. Organizers are extremely grateful to our project’s Indigenous Advisory Council for leading the development of the Summit goals and agenda. 

Applications are due by January 23, 2022
