Community Outreach

The Council works to increase public awareness of the oil spill prevention, response, and environmental protection capabilities in Prince William Sound, as well as the environmental impacts of the Alyeska terminal and tanker operations.

Every year, the Council’s staff and volunteers visit communities in the Council’s region, attend group member functions, give presentations, coordinate special events involving member groups, exhibit and present at conferences, and encourage citizen involvement in the Council’s work.

If you would like the council represented at your event, please contact our outreach coordinator, Betsi Oliver.
