Committed to preservation

Kenai Soil & Water Conservation District, Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service have been long-time partners in working to rehabilitate, protect, and sustain streambank habitat on the Kenai Peninsula.

How we’re doing it

Financial incentives for landowners have been established to help protect and preserve the salmon population and local stream and river habitats for generations to come.

Does your river or stream bank qualify for help?

Educational programming is cooperatively implemented to help communities of the Kenai Peninsula understand the vital role they play in the health and stability of fish and wildlife habitat.

Do you have a group interested in learning more about streambank health on the Kenai Peninsula?

Ways we are making a difference


Planting native vegetation and hydroseeding river and stream banks.


Installing Elevated Light Penetrating (ELP) walkways and platforms.


Installing brush layers, coir logs, trenched willows, and cabled Spruce trees.


Educational outreach and training for local schools and outdoor enthusiasts.


Protecting our streambanks
benefits everyone

Local landowners

A more stable streambank protects your land from erosion, boat wakes, and helps to protect and sustain the local salmon and waterways.

Fish & wildlife

When streambanks are healthy and lush, salmon have more protection from predators, more insects for food, clean spawning gravels, and more.

Our community

Maintained streambanks not only help to preserve the local salmon and fish, but they also look better, filter out pollutants, and slow potential flooding.
