Thanks for volunteering at our stream clean-up

Sound off on the important issues at

The Juneau Watershed Partnership would like to thank the 37 volunteers we had out Oct. 27 for our second annual fall stream clean-up. Thanks to you, over 1,600 lbs. of trash and debris were removed from our local streams! Jordan, Lemon, Duck, Vanderbilt and Montana Creeks are now clean and ready for our first snow.

Many thanks to the Cub Scouts Pack 6, Den 4 and the Juneau Youth for Environmental Action for picking up some of the worst of the worst we found that day. Thanks to the staff at SEACC for coming out in force that morning and loaning us your tent, and thanks to the Vista ladies that braved the rain to walk along Jordan creek. Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers, we really appreciate your support and willingness to brave the rain for the good of our salmon streams.

Our clean-up was successful thanks to the support of our local business sponsors. Many thanks go to Safeway, Heritage Coffee, and the Silverbow Bakery for your donations. Thank you to Duck Creek Market, Landscape Alaska and Hannah Construction for your help and support during our event. Thanks also to KTOO for your support and friendship.

We hope to see you all in May for Litter Free's Community Clean-Up Day.

Thanks for providing retreat transportation

SERRC - Alaska's Educational Resource Center and the Learning Connection would like to thank Princess Tours for donating transportation for our agency's recent staff retreat.

SERRC employs 80 staff members that work in offices located in Juneau and Anchorage. Last week we held an agency-wide retreat and Princess Tours provided the transportation for our visiting Anchorage staff from the downtown area to Chapel by the Lake where the retreat was held.

Thank you Princess Tours for helping our nonprofit agency keep our costs down as we provide educational services and solutions throughout the state that help improve student achievement.
