Title

Friends of the McNeil River

Description

McNeil River State Game Sanctuary is an outgrowth of conservation efforts that began in 1955 when part of the drainage was closed to bear hunting. The closure was deemed necessary to protect extraordinary concentrations of coastal grizzlies that gathered at McNeil Falls to feed on salmon. Twelve years later, the State of Alaska further protected the area by designating it sanctuary. Friends of the McNeil River are concerned about the welfare of Alaska's world famous McNeil River State Game Sanctuary and its magnificent Grizzlies.
