Kachemak Bay Coastwalk

CACS has sponsored this unique community science and stewardship program since 1984. Citizen volunteers adopt a section of the Kachemak Bay shoreline and walk it annually, surveying changes, collecting data on marine life and human impacts, and cleaning up beach litter and marine debris. Download the program brochure here: CoastWalk Brochure.

2016 marks the 32nd year of the CoastWalk program in Kachemak Bay.  This year 553 volunteers picked up over 1,700 lbs of debris from the beaches of Kachemak Bay.  Thanks in part to the Stewards Targeting Ocean Problems  S.T.O.P. Marine Debris grant provided by NOAA we had 17 school groups participate in cleanups this year learning about marine debris and cleaning up our environment.   Thank you to all of our volunteers.
