The Kenai Birding Festival is in full flight this weekend, but if a soggy day in the woods isn’t exactly your thing, the city of Kenai and the Kenai Chamber of Commerce have you covered with a new eagle cam. It just went live Friday. City manager Paul Ostrander showed the first public video of the nest at this week’s city council meeting.

The 13th annual Kenai Peninsula Birding Festival is in full swing with tons of stuff going on throughout the weekend. Ken Tarbox is a long-time organizer for the event.

“And I think what festivals do, besides awareness of the outdoors and the fun you can have in birding, it’s a social event, too. People get together, they get a chance to talk about their birding experiences in the past year, they share stories from other areas.”

Kenai Peninsula Borough

 

 

Currently, the Cooper Landing Emergency Service Area is charged with responding to many of the calls the new service area will cover; nearly 120 miles connecting Moose Pass, Hope and Cooper Landing to the isthmus of the Peninsula near Ingraham Creek which, during the summer, can see as many as 4,000 vehicles pass through a day. Cooper Landing Emergency Service Area board member Ed Holsten says volunteers are getting harder to come by.
