Copper River Native Association honoring a good trail

Published January 2019

“Walk to honor someone, walk to encourage others, walk to remember those you’ve lost. When we stand together, we can create change!”

The Copper River Native Association (CRNA) organized a Community Walk to Support Recovery and Wellness. The walk went five miles from the Ahtna Cultural Center at the Wrangell-St. Elias Park Headquarters to CRNA’s maintenance shop. As CRNA’s Facebook page states:

“As a community, we have seen the effects of the increase in drug use, like meth. We are often left asking ourselves what we can do to help our community.

“When we show up, people notice. We want to bring hope to those who are struggling with addiction and let them know they are supported. At the same time, we can encourage those who have taken the brave steps into recovery.”
