Enhancing Chugach State Park for this and future generations
The Chugach Park Fund was established in 2017 to enable Alaskans of all abilities to experience the beauty of Chugach State Park by enhancing trails and facilities. The Fund will achieve this mission by helping increase stewardship through philanthropy and partnerships.
2018 Investment – Improving Middle Fork Trail – $2,300
With leadership from Chugach State Park, the Chugach Park Fund partnered with Alaska Trails in 2018 to build a ¼ mile length of trail through some of the wettest sections. More than 60 community volunteers turned this muddy section into a beautiful wood and gravel walkway.
2019 Planned Investment – $4,000
The Chugach Park Fund will leverage resources from Chugach State Park to improve signage at the recently completed Backside Flattop Trail off of Canyon Road.
2020 – The 50/50 Campaign – $50,000 for the 50th Anniversary of Chugach State Park
2020 is the 50th Anniversary of Chugach State Park, and the Chugach Park Fund is celebrating in a big way by helping to improve one of the Park’s most beloved trails. We are raising $50,000 of the $100,000 total project cost to gain matching grants and construct a new, easier-to-use trail to access the Ball Field near O’Malley Peak. This goal is possible with the help of businesses, community organizations and individuals who care deeply about improving trails in Chugach State Park for this and future generations.
