Committed to preservation

Kenai Soil & Water Conservation District is partnering with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service to rehabilitate, protect, and sustain local Kenai streambank habitats.

How we’re doing it

Financial incentives and educational outreach programs 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?

Ways we are making a difference

01

Planting native vegetation and hydroseeding river and stream banks.

02

Installing Elevated Light Penetrating (ELP) walkways and platforms.

03

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

04

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.
