River festival educational, fun

Posted: June 12, 2014 - 8:22am

Bravo! Kenai River Watershed Forum for your remarkable presentation at this year’s 24th Annual Kenai River Festival. Instruction, inspiration and education were provided to visitors of all ages by environmentally passionate instructors who used numerous hands-on approaches to teach about soil, gardening, recycling, safety, restoration and especially watershed.

From entertaining music, pony rides and watching a new-born llama interact with his mother, to handling earthworms and blasting paper rockets into the sky, children enjoyed an abundance of exciting activities. Visitors received seeds from Matti’s Farm to plant in their own gardens as well as pine tree plugs from Rural Alaska Fire Prevention. Smokey Bear even made an appearance. Of course, no visit to the festival is complete without a stop at Kid’s Zone face painting booth which seemed to be the most sought after activity.

Three days of fun and learning along the banks of the Kenai River; certainly the benefits of this year’s festival will profit all creatures, great and small, who choose to make this unique peninsula their home.
