Engaging Salcha & Chena Area Partners & Ecosystems unites scientists and experts committed to protect, restore and enhance the Chena & Salcha rivers through partnerships that foster improved habitat and the quality of life for residents, both humans and “critters”. Protect and maintain intact healthy aquatic systems. Reverse declines in the quality and quantity of habitats to improve the overall health of fish, animals and aquatic organisms.


The Watershed Resources Action Plan process included three, 2.5-day workshops with the planning team to target areas in the Chena River Watershed (focusing on ecosystem-level resources), assess current and projected future health of the resources, identify critical threats, and develop conservation strategies to enhance health and abate threats.  The workshops were held in November of 2014, February of 2015 and April of 2015.
