Fish Need Land Too is a collaborative program between KHLT and Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (KBNERR), where small groups trek into the field to discover how land benefits salmon. KBNERR biologists help participants discover how healthy habitat directly benefits salmon at all life stages. This demonstrates that conservation efforts help provide room and board for juvenile fish.
If you’re interested in joining a future Fish Need Land Too field trip, please let us know and Get In Touch.
The King Maker program, developed in Anchorage by Great Land Trust, celebrates individual Alaskans making a difference for salmon in Alaska. Through this program we celebrate Alaskan heroes who are doing great things to conserve salmon habitat by crowning them as King Makers.
The goal of our King Maker program is to inspire individuals in our communities to take simple steps to help salmon on the Peninsula. Acknowledging the value of salmon habitat will help to ensure they are here far into the future.
