Your chance to help build a water trail
The Kachemak Bay Water Trail Steering Committee will hold open house meetings Nov. 13-16 to provide an opportunity for organizations, agencies and the general public to look at maps and suggest locations around Kachemak Bay suitable for Water Trail Sites.
Participants will also be asked to identify sensitive areas that should not be considered for a water trail site, such as wildlife, bird, plant or cultural concerns. Recommendations for seasonal closures especially related to wildlife are also being sought.
