Eyak Lake Paddle Races
July 1, 2023 @ 10:00AM — 1:00PM Alaska
Celebrate Eyak Lake with CRWP during the Eyak Lake Paddle Races!
Join us for the 1st ever Eyak Lake Paddle Races this summer! This race is an opportunity to celebrate an amazing waterbody in Cordova - Eyal Lake! CRWP is currently investing funding in several active projects on Eyak Lake which include replacing the failing weir, surveying spawning and rearing habitat for the first time in 13 years, developing an interactive ecological database for research conducted on Eyak Lake, and managing invasive plants. All of this is because fish are crucial to our community and Eyak Lake is essential fish habitat. Check-in opens at 10 am with the first race launching at 11 am.
