Trout Unlimited (TU) Alaska and their unwavering Save Bristol Bay campaignhave supported me and my work since we made The Breach in 2012. In particular, I want to thank Jenny Weis, Nelli Williams and now, Meghan Barker who have spent hundreds of hours working to bring the message of saving Bristol Bay for future generations to the world. Now we have 2 days left to support their campaign to tell President Trump NO on permitting for the Pebble Mine.
As a special thank you to Save Bristol Bay and the many thousand hunters and anglers who support their important work through their TU Membership, we are offering a special virtual screening to TU Alaska and all your supporters tomorrow night – before the official June 5th launch of our Save What You Love Virtual Tour of The Wild.
If you have signed the letter to the president, you’ll already have received an invite. If you haven’t signed yet, you can do so right HERE – and you’ll receive a welcome letter from TU Alaska with an invite to join us tomorrow night. Tickets are $12. Two dollars of each ticket will go back to TU Alaska to support their ongoing work to Save Bristol Bay!
Live Q&A panel after the screening will feature Meghan Barker from TU Alaska; Nancy Morris Lyon – owner Bear Trail Lodge; Dave McCoy – owner, Emerald Water Anglers; Matt Thorton – guide at Bristol Bay’s Rainbow River Lodge and me.
