Splash Bash celebrates good work

On behalf of Cook Inletkeeper’s board and staff, I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who came out to Bishop’s Beach last Thursday for our 18th Annual Splash Bash. This community party has evolved into a broad celebration of the  work we all do for clean water and healthy salmon. All of our members and supporters make success possible, and it’s your work that truly protects Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet for not only our generation but our kids and generations of future Alaskans.

A huge thank you to the Grog Shop, Fresh Sourdough Express and Finn’s Pizza for fabulous donations of food and drink. And a big shout out to the Howlin’ Whales who not only rocked out to the enjoyment of all — but gave us a big  surprise by donating their pay back to Inletkeeper to support our work.

A sunny evening down at the beach with live music and good food is pretty great. But even better is when you’re surrounded by a hundred people from your community who support, engage and take action to protect the place you call home.

Thanks, everyone, and keep up the good work.

With gratitude,

Rachel Lord, Clean Water Program Director

Cook Inletkeeper
