Kachemak Heritage Land Trust
Author and Alaska native plant expert Janice Schofield conducts an evening lecture and walk at the Carl E. Wynn Nature Center.
Kachemak Heritage Land Trust preserves, for public benefit, land with significant natural, recreational or cultural values by working with willing landowners on the Kenai Peninsula.
Each year the Land Trust sponsors summer programs in Homer and Soldotna designed to enhance knowledge, enjoyment and appreciation of Kachemak Bay's natural surroundings.
The summer program includes: A day at the head of Kachemak Bay; A guided tour of a 19th century Alaska pioneer homestead; Garden tours -- Visit well-known gardens full of native and exotic species and learn how gardening is done in the far north; Calvin & Coyle Woodland Park Nature Trail -- Enjoy an easy hike on the Land Trust's interpretive trail. Identify mosses, mushrooms, nursery logs, wetland grasses and clues to wildlife habitation. A viewing platform provides a good view of the Beluga Wetlands/Airport Critical Habitat Area.
