Retiring and conserving the Bering River coalfield is of global significance.

CAMPAIGN SUPPORT DONATIONS

The Eyak Preservation Council is carrying the torch to take this over the finish line. Your name will be included in the roster of supporters as a Bering River Coalition Member. 

Preserving and thereby removing all development threats (oil, gas, coal, clearcutting and roads), from the Copper River Delta will lead to the permanent protection of the entire three million-acre lower Copper River Watershed, one of the largest conservation opportunities anywhere. Success will protect jobs, recreational lands, subsistence rights and a world-renowned commercial fishing industry in Prince William Sound, the Gulf of Alaska, and beyond. By combining Indigenous leadership, Native Corporations, a South Korean corporation, the State of Alaska, the USFS, foundations, national land trusts, regional grassroots endorsements, community and YOU, all working together for a common conservation goal, this unprecedented opportunity would present an example of cooperation for environmental preservation and model stewardship that can inspire a new generation of Indigenous and conservation leaders.

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN DONOR INTEREST

EPC is actively requesting the involvement of those that wish to make major donations for the purchase of the Bering River coalfields - an investment in forever. Your “investment” will be deposited in the Pinchot Institute for Conservation trust account towards the purchase by the U.S. Forest Service / Department of Agriculture. You will become a member of a prestigious and visionary circle. Please contact us directly for arrangements.
