Stream Watch announces expansion of Award Winning Program
Trained Stream Watch volunteers have been protecting the Russian River and upper Kenai River for over 15 years resulting in a more sustainable fishery. The program has become so effective it is now expanding down to the lower Kenai River. (Stream Watch is a volunteer driven river protection program. Volunteers are provided all of the training and supplies, including volunteer campsites, to make a difference by sharing river protection information and by completing hands-on projects. There are opportunities for everyone!)

KPFHP becomes the 15th regional partnership in the U. S. and represents the 3rd such partnership in Alaska. These partnerships, developed concurrently with the National Fish Habitat Plan, are designed to raise awareness of fish initiatives, assign priorities, and generate annual congressional support to improve aquatic habitat.
