Alaska’s Cold, Wild Kenai River

Alaska’s wild salmon are a natural and economic wonder. One of the areas where their amazing journey from spawning grounds to sea takes place is in the cold, wild Kenai River. We’ve been part of that story for 15 years, collaborating with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other partners to protect more than 700 acres along or near this key Alaskan river.
In 2012, we conserved more than 260 acres of prime salmon spawning habitat: a place that native Alaskan families and wildlife, such as brown bears, depend on to survive. This is wilderness at its best—and we’re working to keep it that way.
