Copper River Nouveau

Our Annual Benefit Gala

Hosted in June each year, Copper River Nouveau is our region’s premier dining experience and fundraiser. It’s a celebration of regional resilience, science, education, community and wild salmon. It combines gourmet food with opportunities to meet important federal and regional elected leaders, scientists, educators, fishermen and others dedicated to maintaining renewable natural systems through science and education.

Corporate and individual sponsorships, a silent and live auction, and dinner ticket sales help raise funds for our research and education. Prior to the dinner, everyone is invited to join us at the Fisheries Achievement Award reception where we honor an individual or group for making a significant contribution toward the sustainable use of fishery resources in Prince William Sound or the Copper River regions.

To join or support our event, please contact Signe Fritsch at or 907-424-5800, ext. 232.
