April 22, 1 pm to 3 pm, 221 W Ship Creek Ave on Ship Creek Trail
- Pick up trash on the Ship Creek Trail and sign up for summer volunteer events.
- Learn about a new trail project to connect the Ship Creek Trail to Coastal Trail.
- Walk to the small boat launch to see cultural and historical displays.

Connecting the Coastal Trail to the Ship Creek Trail has been a dream of trail users for a long time. Plans are underway for the Downtown Trail Connection – https://www.connectcoastaltoship.com/ – a new federally-funded project that will connect the Ship Creek Trail to the Coastal Trail at the Small Boat Launch. Anchorage voters have supported matching funds for this federal project through the park bonds.
Attendees are encouraged to bike or walk to the event to help reduce vehicle emissions and improve air quality. We will be in front of Bridge Restaurant on Ship Creek Trail. Parking is available on Ship Creek Ave near the Ulu Factory and at the Alaska Railroad public parking.
