We provide funding for Katmai National Park interpretive, media, and bear management staff, training, and equipment. We also support a seasonal cultural resource intern, the Katmai Village culture camp, the creation of ethnobotany education kits, and more.
Katmai National Park Staff Funding
We provide funding for Park staff who provide interpretation and educate visitors on the behaviors necessary to maintain the safety of Katmai’s bears and humans alike.
Bear Management Staff
We support the Park staff necessary to ensure the compliance of bear viewing rules and regulations due to the proximity of these amazing animals.
We fund Katmai’s media staff and the equipment necessary to support the valuable explore.org bear cams, live updates and talks, and “Fat Bear Week”.
Cultural Resource Intern
This 16-week cultural resource intern will assist with projects such as the Katmai Village Culture Camp and be introduced to a career in the National Park Service.
Katmai Village Culture Camp
We work with the Park and our community partners in order to help connect local students to the cultural history of the Katmai area and the Park itself.
Ethnobotany Education Kits
We support Katmai’s ethnobotanical studies and the creation of education and outreach kits for local communities, helping to preserve indigenous knowledge of local plants and their uses.
