About The Event

The Chugach National Forest seeks citizen scientists to gather information on site conditions and visitor trends in Eaglek.  Willing volunteers may be able to receive free one-way or roundtrip transport for up to 2 people/2 kayaks. These trips are arranged opportunistically based on your schedule and the Forest Service vessel availability.  You will be contacted if there is vessel availability during your provided dates.  To explore this option, please fill out the rsvp form.

If you don't need vessel support and would like to help us collect data in Eaglek, please contact us directly at 

· Volunteers riding on a Forest Service vessel must be 18 years or older to ride on the vessel and must provide proof of a Covid-19 Vaccination record card or results of a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hrs of mission.

· Participants will be asked to visit up to 4 sites to record information using an app downloaded onto their phone or tablet. Each site visit takes approximately 1 hour.
