In 2002, federal, state, tribal and local entities responsible for Situk watershed management, its resources, and the activities in the area formed a partnership to address community concerns.
The Situk River Partners brings together stakeholders to reach a common goal – the health of our river and consequently our resources and economy.
Representatives include U.S. Forest Service, City & Borough of Yakutat, State of Alaska, Yakutat Tlingit Tribe, Environmental Protection Agency, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
These partners develop management plans to address public concerns and resource issues. The Situk Partners provide a vital collaboration that was re-instituted on March 13th, 2020 after not meeting for 9 years.
YTT encourages its Tribal members to comment on Situk River management by calling YTT at (907) 784-3238 ext. 107, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or leaving a message on the YTT Fisheries website.
These comments will be taken into consideration at the next Situk River Partners meeting after the season on October 5th (details to be announced) with a management plan to follow.
