Prince of Wales Island: Art Meets Ceremony

Amy Gulick's Salmon in the Trees photography exhibit provided a beautiful backdrop for the Prince of Wales Restoration Celebration, a day-long event that united partners and communities on the Island.

Early on August 25th, participants enjoyed a fied trip to the Harris River, where the Forest Service recently completed an extensive restoration project with The Nature Conservancy and other partners.

Later, attendees enjoyed dinner and an awards ceremony at Craig High School, followed by a stirring performance by the Klawock Heenya Dancers and Amy Gulick's slide presentation of incredible photographs from her book.

The fifth stop in a six-city tour, Craig will host the Salmon in the Trees exhibit through September 19th.

  1. A big thank you to the communities and partners that made the Prince of Wales Restoration Celebration such an incredible day. It was a beautiful sight to see pink and chum salmon spawning in the newly restored and renamed Gandlaay Haanaa.
