Anchor River projects get help

Posted: Thursday, January 08, 2004

Community Rivers Planning Coalition and the Homer Soil and Water Conservation District would like to thank the Kenai River Sportfishing Association for its support of interpretive signage in the Anchor River Watershed.

Through the Kenai River Sportfishing Association's assistance, the coalition has been able to install and implement six signs in the Anchor River State Recreation Area. These signs give visitors information on the importance of natural resource conservation by focusing on issues such as proper catch-and-release techniques, streambank protection, the natural history of salmon and more.

Kenai River Sportfishing Association's support also has allowed the coalition to construct a sign at the Anchor Point Community Trailhead located at mile 5 North Fork Road. This trailhead, designated multi-use, gives the community access to the backcountry.

Thanks again to the Kenai River Sportfishing Association for helping the Community Rivers Planning Coalition and the Homer Soil and Water Conservation District accomplish these important projects in the Anchor River watershed.
