Trees Along the Kenai Riverbank

Sounds Wild: Trees Need Salmon

As you drive toward Soldotna you will see the Kenai River on your left. This river has thousands of salmon spawning in it each year. Mostly sockeye or red salmon but also coho or silver salmon, chinook or king salmon and pink or humpy salmon. After these salmon die, they float downstream and are deposited along the riverbank where they decompose and provide food to the riverside plants.
