Kenai Watershed Forum GIS specialist Branden Bornemann (right) talks to a visitor during the Kenai Watershed Forum’s holiday open house Wednesday in Soldotna. The nonprofit held a community open house at its headquarters behind Soldotna Creek Park on Wednesday night to celebrate the events of the past year. The environmental nonprofit focuses on protecting the Kenai River and its tributaries, conducting annual water quality assessments and advocating for habitat protection, as well as hosting an educational kids’ summer camp program, coordinating the Adopt-A-Stream program and organizing the Kenai River Festival each summer. It’s also the hub for the Stream Watch Program on the lower Kenai River, which organizes volunteers to clean up trash from along the Kenai River, erect temporary habitat fencing and educate anglers about habitat protection while fishing.
