Nikiski chamber to meet today

The Nikiski Chamber of Commerce will meet today at Lighthouse Community Church (previously North Kenai Baptist Church). The candidate for North Peninsula Law Enforcement Service Area Board seat B, Phil Nash, will speak. For more information, call Judene Van Cleave at 776-5551.

Refuge trail reopened

Effective immediately, the Moose Creek Trail at Tustumena Lake has been reopened to the public. The trail, along with the Emma Lake Trail and Bear Creek Trail, were closed due to dangers of the Glacier Creek Fire.

Bear Creek was previously reopened; however, the Emma Lake Trail remains closed due to some active burning areas and hundreds of hazard trees and snags along its route.

The Glacier Creek Fire is not expected to be declared out until later in the fall, but state managers rate the risk of any active burning impacting the Bear Creek or Moose Creak trails as low at this time.

Hunters and hikers using the area are cautioned to be careful with campfires and to report any dangerous trail conditions to the refuge at 262-7021.
