The Kenai River meanders through a sweeping salt marsh and wetland on its final five-mile journey to its mouth on Cook Inlet. While more well known for its immense flocks of migrating birds and the presence of a small herd of caribou, the estuary also draws moose into the open.
Where Will You Find The Most Moose?
During the green season, try dawn or dusk, and use binoculars or scopes to scan edge habitat where the sedge-and-grass expanse meets the forest. During winter, moose will browse in the open if winds have swept the marsh free of snow. A small park on the south side of the Warren Ames Memorial Bridge gives direct foot access to the terrain with a great view. A viewing deck looks out over the marsh a mile downstream.
