Kenai-Russian River collaborative public process continues

The public is invited to assist management agencies in developing a 5-year action plan for reducing adverse human-bear encounters on the Kenai Peninsula’s Russian and Kenai Rivers

 

Forums have been scheduled this week for the public to discuss experiences, thoughts and ideas on how to reduce adverse encounters between humans and bears in the Russian and Kenai River high use area.

Forums have been scheduled for today at 6 p.m. at the Gilman River Center on Funny River Road in Soldotna; Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Cooper Landing Community Center on Bean Creek Road in Cooper Landing; and Thursday at 6 p.m. at The Commons at UAA in Anchorage.

More information can be found on the project website: https://projects.ecr.gov/kenai-russianriver/.

Public input may also be submitted via email at comments-alaska-chugach-seward@fs.fed.us (put “Kenai-Russian River Comment” in the email’s subject line).

This public process is sponsored by the US Forest Service and US Fish and Wildlife Service, in collaboration with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and other members of the Russian River Interagency Coordination Group (including the Alaska Division of State Parks, the Kenaitze Indian Tribe, and Cook Inlet Region, Inc.).
