Summer is officially over and with it goes many of the outdoor activities Alaskans and visitors love. The Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies in Homer takes advantage of the summer months to give people a chance to enjoy kayaking, berry picking, and long hikes in different areas of Kachemak Bay. The goal is to teach people about the diversity of the area’s environment. Before the last days of summer KBBI’s Quinton Chandler followed a group of nature lovers and a Coastal Studies naturalist for a tour of Peterson Bay.
