Historical group takes steps to protect dunes

Posted: Wednesday, March 31, 2010

KENAI - Sand dunes at the mouth of the Kasilof River may get help from an unusual source.

The Kasilof Regional Historical Association is stepping in to protect dunes from human-caused degradation.

Association President Brent Johnson said his group hopes to erect a post-and-chain fence around dunes to protect them from motorized vehicles.

The fence would be modeled after a barrier installed around beach dunes on the north and south shores of the mouth of the Kenai River.

The Kasilof project is estimated to cost about $65,000, most of which could come from the legislature.

The Department of Natural Resources has primary authority over the area and a fence would have to go through a land-use permitting process and coastal zone review.
