Kenai River Comprehensive Management Plan

Kenai River Comprehensive Management Plan
Adopted December 1997

Due to the size of the Kenai River Comprehensive Management Plan, it has been broken down into several separate PDF documents. An attempt was made to make the pdf document appear identical to the printed plan. However, this was not feasible, so you might find some minor differences. The maps for Appendices F and G are in color in the pdf files, but black and white in the printed plan. All pertinent graphics, maps and text have been included. To access the PDF files, see the list below and click on your choice.

All below files are pdf and can be viewed using Adobe Acrobat 9 or greater.
