The Fairbanks Cost Share Project is a financial incentive and educational outreach project directed towards public land managers and private landowners. The Project provides funding and technical project design assistance to sustain and enhance valuable salmon habitat. ADF&G partners with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, nonprofit organizations, local government, and landowners to rehabilitate and sustain salmon habitat in watersheds of the Fairbanks area. ADF&G staff provides education opportunities to landowners, public land managers and the general public to learn about the value of fish habitat, and provides technical planning and permitting assistance. The Fairbanks Cost Share was established in 2008 and has completed shoreline stabilization and rehabilitation projects on the Chena River.
