It feels like summer here on the Kenai Peninsula. That means busy days of fieldwork for KP-CISMA field crews and loads of opportunities for the rest of us to get outside and enjoy the endless activity of summer. Between the fishing trips, hikes, and family camping getaways, here are a few ways you can engage with the KP-CISMA and get involved in your local community in the upcoming weeks:
Kenai river festival, June 10-12, Soldotna creek park
The KP-CISMA will be hosting a booth at the Kenai River Festival. Stop by the Kids Zone on Saturday, June 11 from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm or Sunday, June 12 from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm to practice your PlayCleanGo skills with an invasive species scavenger hunt! KP-CISMA partners will also be available to provide information and answer your invasive species questions. This is a free event.
Alaska invasive species awareness week, June 12-18
Join us to celebrate the many efforts to keep Alaska wild and free from invasive species! During this week-long event, people from across the state come together to raise awareness about invasive species and the threats they pose to Alaska’s ecosystems, economy, and communities. Visit the Alaska Invasive Species Partnership’s (AKISP) events page and follow AKISP on Facebook to find out how you can get involved with events happening in your community.
