Be a Part of Something Wild
Your Friends Gift will contribute to the mission of the Conservancy to support Katmai National Park and Preserve. Katmai, with its 4 million acres is the fourth largest park in the National Park system, and yet It is one of the least funded. With its amazing array of wildlife, coastal and river ecosystems, majestic mountains and volcanoes Katmai is a true National Treasure. Incidentally, Katmai also has BEARS!
Katmai Conservancy strives to support education and interpretation both within and outside of the park, research on the Park's bears, and on our extensive cultural history that spans thousands of years. Our goals also include promoting youth engagement in the local and online communities, as well as ensuring the environmental sustainability of the fragile Alaskan ecosystems. A vital project is the improvement of the Park infrastructure, such as renovated visitors centers, staff housing, and renovations for visitor safety.
Each of these projects is a worthy cause, seeking 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 make a difference.
