Mystery Creek Access Road open through Oct. 21

The opening of Mystery Creek Access Road and a portion of the Alaska Pipeline Company's right of way corridor began Aug. 1 and will continue through Oct. 21. The pipeline corridor may be closed earlier to prevent surface damage should weather and road conditions dictate, or in the case of a fire in the area.

There may be areas of standing water with soft bottoms on the road, so the use of two-wheel drive vehicles is discouraged. Travel on the road and pipeline corridor will be at the user's own risk. Users are reminded to limit vehicle travel to the established road and corridor. Vehicle operators are not authorized to travel off the primary corridor or to travel east on the pipeline corridor beyond the eastern bank of the Moose River's East Fork.

All-terrain vehicles are not authorized on Mystery Creek Road or any other part of the refuge.

Coastwalk event planned for September

The Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies will hold its 17th annual Kachemak Bay Coastwalk during "Coastweeks" Sept. 15-29.

Coastwalk is an all-volunteer effort to gather information about wildlife and human impact on the beaches of Kachemak Bay. Participants sign up to walk one of 32 zones around the bay and record their findings.

Coastwalk will begin with a volunteer gathering and dessert potluck Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies office on the corner of Lake Street and Smokey Bay Way in Homer. Coastwalkers can register for their zone, pick up their instructions, map and checklist at this event or by calling 235-6667.
