Alaska National Parks Discovery Series: Red Gold: Giving a Voice to the People Of Bristol Bay

Date: April 21, 2009
Location: Anchorage, Alaska

The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) is proud to host the third season in an exciting new lecture series to introduce residents to Alaska's 15 national parks, monuments, and preserves, which encompass two-thirds the total acreage of America's National Park System. A diverse array of Alaskan speakers will share personal stories inspired by Alaska’s national parks. From Katmai's world-renowned brown bears to Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve, the series will highlight recreational opportunities, significant historical and cultural sites, and the role parks play as a driving force for Alaska's economy.

As Bristol Bay’s wild salmon prepare to race for spawning grounds in and around Lake Clark and Katmai National Parks and Preserves, Red Gold triumphantly returns to Anchorage after sweeping top honors at independent film festivals worldwide. This stunning documentary film captures local subsistence, sport and commercial fishing families hard at work and sharing their thoughts and fears about how the proposed Pebble Mine may transform the region and one of the world’s last remaining intact wild salmon fisheries.
