The Susitna River Coalition includes a growing community that supports a free-flowing Susitna River and the strong fisheries and recreational and tourism economy it sustains. The coalition is now more than 16,000 individuals, groups, and businesses from around Alaska and the nation. Its immediate work is to stop the proposed Susitna mega dam through collaboration, education, advocacy and awareness of the values of an intact Susitna watershed. Its long-term work is to establish permanent protection for the river.

Based in Talkeetna, a community central to the Susitna ecosystem, SRC is led by a core group of volunteer board of directors. SRC relies on dozens of active volunteers from around the region and several contractors to stop the dam and protect the river.
