Susitna Salmon Center, Talkeetna

4.5
The goal of the Susitna Salmon Center is to increase public awareness of freshwater ecosystems and to encourage individual actions that lead to habitat conservation. The center will contain aquarium exhibits of local freshwater fish (Pacific salmon and resident fish species), descriptions of their habitat requirements and digital video presentations. The preservation of salmon and their habitats is accomplished through multiple different approaches including research, land management and planning, environmental regulation and enforcement, habitat restoration, and public education. The Susitna Salmon Center will provide information on research results, inform the public about the importance of land use decisions, and provide information linking human actions to the loss of fish habitat.



The Susitna Salmon Center will also be a gallery for the display (and sale) of original artwork on the subject of rivers and salmon. The Center will have a retail store offering prints and cards, books, mosaics, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, clothing, and kitchenware. The theme will be salmon, resident fish, and rivers.

  • Free to visit. Nice shop, information on salmon, live tanks and an informative video on the planned dam on the Susitna River. Nice place to stop in on a rainy day in Talkeetna.
  • It's a nice little visit, good information
  • a small, unpretentious but interesting salmon museum, free, and little stuffed toys to buy for volunteer support 🙂
  • We stayed in one of the two "Tiny Homes" that the SSC rents out. It was wonderful! Kitchen, living room, bathroom and upstairs bedroom. Very comfortable. It is in town, but within walking distance of everything. Stores, restaurants, and the river. Jeff was wonderful and very accommodating. We also took the river tour given by Jeff. It was very informative. The SSC had VERY nice artwork and gifts in it. Plus upstairs was very informative about salmon. And a very good video to watch.
  • A favorite gift shop in Talkeetna. Also great info about the rivers and salmon in Alaska.
