Donate to the Otis Fund
An annual online fundraiser originally launched during Fat Bear Week 2020, the Otis Fund helps Katmai Conservancy continue to provide support to Katmai National Park and Preserve. Katmai, with its 4 million acres, is the fourth largest park in the National Park system, and yet it's one of the least funded. With its amazing array of flora and fauna, coastal and river ecosystems, and majestic mountains and volcanoes, Katmai is a true national treasure deserving of protection. By the way, Katmai is also home to BEARS!
Donations raised through the Otis Fund allow Katmai Conservancy to support education and interpretation, both within and outside of Katmai National Park and Preserve. The Otis Fund also provides funding for important research on Katmai's brown bears and extensive human history. Other initiatives include promoting youth engagement in the local and online communities, ensuring the environmental sustainability of the fragile ecosystems of Katmai, and the necessary improvement of Park infrastructure.
Each of these projects seeks to improve the quality of the visitor experience as well as preserve the dynamic, unique landscape that includes Katmai and its surrounding communities. With your help, we can and will continue to make a difference. Thank you for your support!
