Calling all inquisitive explorers, young anglers, brilliant biologists, future fish nerds, and generally nature-curious kiddos! Alaska 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!

This club is a place where young people meet scientists, learn about careers in this field, and build an understanding and appreciation for Alaska fish, wildlife, and public lands. Our in-person Anchorage youth fishing program grew into this larger online community where youth, mentors, and professionals could continue to safely interact during the COVID-19 pandemic. While we continue to offer in-person programming as capacity and conditions allow, we enthusiastically continue to offer this virtual space for networking, learning, and sharing inspiration! We meet every Wednesday and frequently have guest speakers.
