The goal of the “Baby Salmon Live Here” project is to create more public awareness about juvenile salmon, the salmon lifecycle, and salmon habitat in Southcentral Alaska; provide understanding of threats to salmon; empower residents to get involved through public support for salmon conservation and restoration; and encourage salmon habitat stewardship activities among individuals, landowners, recreational users, and developers.
Educational signs will be placed near important fish rearing habitat to raise awareness that salmon are around us all the time. The signs will include information about salmon and salmon habitat protection that is specific to each stream or lake.
