Walk for the WILD 2022 with Alaska Team16!

We’re on a mission to empower wildlife and humans to thrive. The challenge is to get people moving a distance of 5K in nature and to raise funds to support ALL 16 of Alaska’s Wildlife Refuges.

No matter where you live you can walk in support of Alaska’s 16 National Wildlife Refuges. Register for FREE and join AlaskaTeam16! and start YOUR Walk for the Wild. LIVE events happening in Anchorage, Kenai and Kodiak. 

When you register, consider making a donation to support our team and our mission/goal to raise $16,000 to support the work of Friends of Alaska National Wildlife Refuges.


Alaska’s Refuges face a variety of unique challenges that distinguish them from the hundreds of other wildlife refuges in the lower 48 states. YOU can help us meet those challenges when YOU:

  • Donate – By making a donation to our team, 100% of your support will benefit our mission to promote the stewardship of Alaska’s unique national wildlife refuges and, thanks to the support of national donors and the Public Lands Alliance, a portion of your gift will be matched by the Amplifier Fund. 
  • Join an Event – You can sign up to join one of the events hosted on Refuges and by Friends in Alaska occurring between today and  October 15th  or virtually in your own community, enjoying nature right outside your door during National Wildlife Refuge Week (October 8th-15th). 
  • Spread the Word – Join our team and use the sharing tools to let your family, friends, and colleagues they can participate too.
