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.
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 Little O’Malley Peak Trail to access the Ball Field. 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.
Rasmuson Foundation and Marcia Bandy generously provided funds so that construction can start this spring.
2019 Investment – $2,000
The Chugach Park Fund leveraged resources from Chugach State Park to improve signage at the recently completed Flattop Sunnyside Trail off Canyon Rd. An interpretive sign will be installed in spring 2020.
2018 Investment – Improving Middle Fork Trail – $2,300
With leadership from Chugach State Park, the Chugach Park Fund partnered with Alaska Trails 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.
