Job description and qualifications
In our Kenai Mountains to Sea Project, Kachemak Heritage Land Trust collaborates with partners to identify and preserve important fish and wildlife movement corridors across the Kenai Peninsula. Combining the tools and expertise of multiple organizations, we work to conserve the most ecologically significant land parcels, strategically building corridors of protected fish and wildlife habitat.
Contributions to this project are leveraged by a matching grant from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Coastal Program, allowing your money to go farther toward protecting vital habitat connectivity for our treasured fish and wildlife resources. Make a grant match donation today to help preserve the most significant privately owned Kenai Peninsula land – from Mountains to Sea!
In the week before Christmas 2015, the U.S. Congress voted to make the tax incentive for conservation easement donations permanent. This legislation represents a huge win for the land trust community, as the tax incentive has previously been for fixed periods without guarantee of renewal.

Properties comprising KHLT's Anchor River Salmon Conservation Area contain cold water refugia critical to the survival of salmon as stream temperatures rise, and are adjacent or near to other preserved riverfront properties.
KHLT’s work on the Anchor River helps to fill gaps in the river corridor protected by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources. Protection of the river corridor is important for water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and the attendant social and economic benefits for lower Kenai Peninsula communities.
