TVWA used this fun and interactive "Story Map" system to write a story about the Chena River that runs through downtown Fairbanks. The Chena River has served our community for many purposes throughout the history of Fairbanks. Both in the past and the present, it has served us for activities like transportation, subsistence hunting and fishing, and the provision of wildlife habitat. Take a moment to explore the Chena River.
