Alaska Virtual Youth Fish and Wildlife Club

Calling all inquisitive explorers, young anglers, brilliant biologists, future fish nerds, and generally nature-curious kiddos! Alaska's Virtual Youth Fish & Wildlife Club aims to tap into youth curiosity and wonder, foster appreciation for nature and culture in Alaska, engage young people informally with science, and teach proficiency in outdoor skills. Programming is tailored to middle school and younger, but all are welcome!
