On June 6, 1912, a newly formed vent unleashed the largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century in what became known as the Valley of 10,000 Smokes in Katmai National Park and Preserve. Today, it's a fascinating backpacking destination for anyone with an interest in geology or just an appreciation for impressive scenery.
Host Jenny Neyman speaks with Cathy Bell, chief of interpretation and education at Katmai National Park and Preserve, about the geology of the valley and how to plan a visit.

Join Bill for a tour of Cooper Landing Brewing, a taste of brewing science and a talk about taboo beer labels.

Doug Armstrong, Jim Bennett, Wally Hufford and Julie Stephens spent 11 days paddling down the Alatna River in Gates of the Arctic National Park in July, and they join KDLL Adventure Talks for an hour talk about planning and packing for the packraft trip.
 

They'll share photos and stories from the trip during a live presentation at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center. Come ask questions, check out their gear and maybe get an idea for an adventure of your own.

Join Bill for a visit to the Kenai Peninsula Brewing and Tasting Society, a toast to the IPA, the latest beer gear and a discussion on brewery taprooms.

It’s harvest time on the central Kenai Peninsula. But what to do with all that garden goodness? On today’s show, we’ll turn flowers into food, follow food from the high tunnel to the soup pot at the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank, and we’ll grill local chef Willow King for a quick-and-easy preparation for fresh, local produce.

We've got tips on what to do with spruce tips, a food guide that makes harvesting local produce way easier than growing it yourself, greenhouse grow boxes that'll about raise the roof, and there are some farmers who are loving the cool, wet weather this year. Thanks to our guests, Jacki Michels, Marcia Kardatzke, Wayne and Patti Floyd of Cool Cache Farms and Heidi Chay with the Kenai Soil and Water Conservation District.

True Tales, Told Live is a storytelling group in the central Kenai Peninsula. Participants tell a true story, live, with no notes, based on the night's theme. The fifth storytelling event was held June 2 at Odie's in Soldotna, with the theme of "Nature vs. Not Sure." This is Part 2, with additional stories from the Scary Stories event in October.
