Alaska Native Science & Engineering Program (ANSEP)The word “Tamamta” means “all of us” in the Sugpiaq and Yup’ik languages. It is also the name of the new graduate traineeship program at University of Alaska Fairbanks College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences. This new program will be investing in Alaska Native scientists who can broaden the outlook of STEM research, particularly in fisheries, and is recruiting now for fall 2021!

Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies**Through the Watershed Mini-Expedition!** Come explore the lands and waters of Kachemak Bay and learn about the science, policy, and cultural approaches to stewardship of this place. The Through the Watershed Mini-Expedition is a 3-weekend series for 7th-10th grade students. It includes two days at the Inspiration Ridge Preserve and Wynn Nature Center (September 26 & 27), two days and one night camping at Swift Creek near the head of Kachemak Bay (October 3-4) and three days and two nights at the Peterson Bay Field Station (October 16-18). Teens can participate in one, two, or all three of the parts but we recommend all three for the most meaningful experience! We want to make this opportunity for in-person, outdoor learning available for all 7th-10th graders who would like to participate in the expedition. Full and partial scholarships are available! Contact Katie Gavenus at 907-235-1974 or katieg@akcoastalstudies.org for more information or to apply for a scholarship. Register for the Mini-Expedition now by visiting www.akcoastalstudies.org and clicking the red "Book Now!" button. Then select "Through the Watershed Expedition" -- part I, part II, part III -- or all of them! Fun, engaging, outdoor-focused curriculum includes guest speakers, water quality monitoring, visit to a homestead cabin, stewardship capstone project, tidepooling, beach clean up, and a chance to explore our watershed from the headwaters to the Bay! (For homeschoolers, activities are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards, AK History Standards, and AK Government/Citizenship Standards.) CACS has a detailed COVID-19 mitigation plan. All participants and staff will go through a brief health screening each day, we are mindful of physical distancing, face coverings are worn indoors at times when participants and CACS staff will be closer than 6 feet, and proper hand washing & sanitizing is required. #outdooreducation #exploringnature #ecologyiseverywhere #scienceandnature #placebasededucation #ontheland #kachemakbay #Kachemak #outdoorlearning #stewardship ...

"Social" distancing? No! Keep your physical distance but stay socially close!

Elders Margaret Laviqueur and Sunni Hilts know it's important to remain socially connected, even if you do have to be physically distant.

Taking the time to engage with friends and family to strengthen connections will help us as we head into the darker months of the year. Remember, this physical distancing doesn’t mean you can’t stay connected and support one another's mental health and overall wellness.

Here’s how you can remain responsibly connected:

Video chats and phone calls with friends and family

Hiking and taking in the great out-of-doors

Virtual movie night with your family and friends (video chat or text while watching the same movie in your own homes or rooms)

Exercise/yoga/mindfulness videos online to be physically active in the comfort of your own home

Video games that allow you to connect with people around the world
