StreamWatch volunteers make a difference

Posted: September 13, 2013 - 8:46am

On behalf of Kenai Peninsula Rivers and the wildlife that thrive because of their health, I would like to express the sincerest gratitude to each and every Stream Watch volunteer who donated their time to make a difference on our local rivers this summer. Each summer season every day people come together through the Stream Watch program to provide an extraordinary day of river protection from the Russian River to the Kenai and the Kasilof.

Volunteers attend a training in June so that they can share river protection information and complete projects to protect and restore sensitive riverside areas. During the 2013 Stream Watch season more than 70 volunteers spent more than 1,300 hours removing 850-plus pounds of litter, 130-plus pounds of fishing line and 1 fish passage barrier while sharing river protection information with more than 4,100 people so that they could make informed decisions while on or near the water. Every day people doing extraordinary things. Many thanks to each Stream Watch Volunteer who chose to enjoy the summer sun while making a difference this summer.
