August 19th, 2013 - Kachemak Heritage Land Trust [KHLT] recently purchased two properties on the South Fork of the Anchor River for permanent conservation. The purchase was made possible by KHLT’s special, restricted Lower Peninsula Wetlands Fund.
The properties front the Anchor River and contain side channels and wetlands important to juvenile salmon. They are adjacent to other preserved riverfront properties, and bring KHLT’s holdings on the Anchor River to nearly 147 acres. 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. Full press release Homer Tribune story Related article from Land Trust Alliance Saving Land magazine
