Yukon Flats community dealing with river erosion and landscape changes that are threatening the loss of traditional harvesting areas.
Observation by Rocky James:
Rapid change to the channels and banks of the Yukon River is occurring in the Fort Yukon area. Also changes to the lakes. River bank erosion is threatening subsistence camps and lake drying is causing changes in the landscape. River and lake change pose navigation challenges and result in the loss of traditional use areas.
