Join us on Wednesday May 22 from 5-7p at the Selkregg Chalet at Russian Jack Springs Park to pot white spruce seedlings. Become a “tree parent” and take your seedling home to care for during the summer months. Bring it back in the fall to be planted in the forest.
Seedlings have been generously donated by the Alaska Division of Forestry, Community Forestry Program. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 343-4217 for more information.
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADG&G), as owner and operator of the Rabbit Creek Shooting Park (RCSP), advises the public of the potential danger in conducting individual or group activities down range (beyond the back stop and side berms) from the various firing points at this facility. During to past few weeks, staff members at RCSP, located at the southward end of the Anchorage city limits just west of the New Seward Highway (15222 New Seward Highway), have observed individuals and groups kite boarding in the area immediately west of the backstop on the center-fire rifle range. Although the vast majority of bullets fired at this facility are contained within the confines of each range, a stray or deflected shot could escape. Warning signs are posted along the side boundaries of the RCSP.
If you have any questions regarding the RCSP and the safety area around it, please contact the staff at the range either in person, by telephone from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm Wednesday through Sunday (907-345-7831) or by email at email@example.comAdditional information about the RCSP is available on the ADF&G website: http://www.wildlife.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=anchorage_range.main. Department of Fish and Game reserves the right to practice shoot at anytime. During the spring there are so many agencies bringing in summer help for remote areas, that bear safety training is spilling over to traditional closed days (Mondays and Tuesdays and at earlier and later hours.
