We're starting a new weekend social media tradition here on the ACA Water Blog - Stewardship Saturdays! And to start things off, we'll be highlighting each of our 2015 Club Fostered Stewardship (CFS) Grant recipients.
For the past 13 years, the ACA has partnered with L.L. Bean to provide the CFS Grant to grassroots stewardship initiatives across the country. From cleaning up waterways, to improving local access for paddlers, to conducting environmental education programs, these organizations deserve some serious recognition for their excellent stewardship work.
Today, we'd like to congratulate Anchorage Waterways Council, hailing from "the Last Frontier" of Alaska.
Established in 1984, the Anchorage Waterways Council promotes the protection, restoration, and enhancement of waterways, wetlands, and associated uplands within the Municipality of Anchorage, AK.
This year, the Anchorage Waterways Council will be using CFS Grant funds to support their 31st Annual Creek Cleanup, a yearly event that mobilizes hundreds of volunteers to remove trash from local creeks.
Inspired to start your own local stewardship project? Apply for the CFS grant next year! Get more information here.
