Russian River weir hike planned

Posted: Friday, July 20, 2007

Patti Berkhahn, a fishery biologist and project leader for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Soldotna, will lead a hike to Russian River Falls and remote field camp at the Russian River weir on Thursday at 10 a.m.

In addition to watching salmon jump up the falls, Berkhahn also will describe the complex relationships that form during the salmon runs.

Interested participants are asked to RSVP and meet at the upper Russian River Falls trailhead, located in the Russian River Campground, at 10 a.m. There may be an entry fee at the gate.

The hike is approximately 3.5 miles round trip on a well-traveled trail, but participants should still bring good hiking gear, a sack lunch, and plenty of water. All ages are welcome, but pets are not.

To RSVP or for more information, call the Kenai Watershed Forum at (907) 260-5449.
