Purpose

We take our mission of “working together for healthy watersheds on the Kenai Peninsula” seriously.  KWF is a dynamic organization dedicated to our rivers, streams and surrounding communities of the Kenai Peninsula and State of Alaska for now and the future.  Working hand-in-hand with other non-profits, government agencies, philanthropic foundations, and corporate entities has strengthened the impact for healthy habitat on the Kenai Peninsula immeasurably. The Kenai Watershed Forum (KWF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is recognized as the regional watershed organization of the Kenai Peninsula, successfully identifying and addressing the needs of the region by providing high quality EDUCATION, RESTORATION and RESEARCH programs. In 2009, the KWF Board of Directors and Staff set forth goals and accomplishments for the future of our organization and the area we provide services to.  Our Stategic Plan – The Way Forward: Action Plan for 2010-2015 is a guide to our future achievements.

Programs

K-12 Education Opportunities for Teachers and Students

KWF offers a variety of hands-on Watershed Education programs and materials for K-12 classes and youth groups on the Kenai Peninsula. KWF education staff lead classroom and field-based activities that help youth gain the knowledge, experience and motivation to become active stewards of the Kenai PeninsulaÕs unique watershed resources. KWF education staff can tailor programs for grade level and group interest.

KWF Summer Camp

The Kenai Watershed Forum is happy to offer Fur, Fins, Feathers, Flowers, and Fun at Soldotna Creek Park. What better way for your child to spend a summer day than by exploring the banks of Soldotna Creek and searching for aquatic insects, flipping over logs in search of decomposition in action, or playing in a forest pretending to be a predator on the hunt? Each week long session will include games, crafts, lessons, songs, and most importantly lots and lots of fun! Participants will benefit from spending time outside with new friends exploring rivers and forests on the Kenai Peninsula.
