For The Love of Salmon & Art
Although we can’t gather like normal this year, your Salmon Jam Planning Committee is committed to keeping the Salmon Jam Spirit alive in Cordova!
The natural beauty of this place is one of a kind. Organizations like Copper River Watershed Project and Prince William Sound Science Center have boots on the ground year-round to study, educate, restore and strengthen the in-tact resources and the community here.
At the same time, our local non-profit arts council, Cordova Arts & Pageants helps us express and celebrate what we love about this place — providing art and culture to our remote community for over 50 years.
Cordova is a great place to live, visit, and learn, and Cordova Chamber of Commerce works diligently to keep it that way while supporting our many unique and colorful small businesses.
- The City of Cordova is lucky to be surrounded by the beautiful Chugach National Forest. Both our municipal and US Forest Service leadership strive to keep this place healthy and thriving.
