Trail Construction Begins
Ptarmigan Ptrails, a Northwest-based trail construction company and member of the nationally recognized Professional Trail Builders Association, has begun trail construction on our Poopdeck Platt property. The new universally accessible trail is part of our Poopdeck Community Park project, aiming to help make Homer a more walkable and inclusive community. We ask for your patience with our increased traffic and temporarily decreased access to the area.
Approximate trail construction timeline:
This trail project is in collaboration with the City of Homer and Homer Independent Living Center. Other upcoming features of the Poopdeck Community Park project include informational signs with interactive elements, and in partnership with Homer Animal Friends, dog leashes and waste disposal stations. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this trail a reality!

Beer for a Cause
Our Soldotna neighbor, Kenai River Brewing Co (KRBC), generously brewed a beer supporting KHLT – donating a portion of the sales to our important conservation organization. The Double Spruce Tip IPA is currently available on tap at KRBC and Alice’s Champagne Palace. The spruce tips were harvested from Land Trust properties and our Stewardship Director, Joel Cooper was excited to help with the brewing!
As part of this great opportunity, KHLT held a Battle of the Beer Label contest. There was a tie for first place and six-packs will be available for purchase by the beginning of 2019 which will include three cans of each design. Congratulations to Cheryl Newell of Sterling and Tammy Tyler of Seward for their winning entries! Monies raised will help fund KHLT’s annual stewardship responsibilities; stewarding irreplaceable lands under our care from the head of Kachemak Bay to the Kenai River. Thank you KRBC!
