Fish Need Land Too Field Trips
Join KHLT and Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (KBNERR) to learn, on the ground, how land feeds salmon. We will explore the importance of land to salmon and examine how healthy land habitat, and the conservation efforts that protect them, help to provide room and board for juvenile fish. In this field trip, the group will witness first-hand salmon in their terrestrial habitat and see a demonstration of electrofishing.
