In 2011, the Alaska State Legislature dedicated the fourth Saturday in July as Ted Stevens Day as a tribute to the Senator’s many contributions to our state. The Foundation, in keeping with the Senator’s mantra to “Get Out and Play,” organizes statewide events on Ted Stevens Day to provide opportunities for Alaskans to enjoy the outdoors in honor of Senator Stevens.
