Known on the bear chat as Kenairiver, Shanna was raised in Alaska and still maintained a family cabin where she entertained friends on visits to Alaska. She was always willing to share her love and knowledge of Alaska and its wildlife with the bear cam chatters. An avid photographer, Shanna visited Brooks in 2016 and posted many of her picture for everyone to enjoy. She was planning to return to Brooks this September. She will be greatly missed on the chat.
For those who wish, in memory of Shanna, you may contribute to Katmai Conservancy. Be sure to tell us your memories and we will share them with her family and friends.
