With amazing weather and great events, this year’s Fourth of July celebration was one to remember!

The U.S. Forest Service Cordova Ranger District wants to thank everyone who recreated on Chugach National Forest over the holiday weekend for keeping your public trails, campsites and day-use areas clean and well-maintained.

This community effort ensures all visitors can enjoy our wild spaces and is critical for ensuring that bears do not become habituated to recreation areas on the Copper River Delta.
