One essential function of the Homer
District is to advise landowners and provide recommendations
about the sustainable use of land resources. In addition to collaboration
with the local Natural Resource Conservation Service the District
can assist in conservation planning. This is one of the services
provided to District Cooperators - for more information check
out the Cooperator page.
The Landscape Suitability Mapping
and Developer Certification Project is currently under
way! This pilot effort, funded by the US EPA, is intended to
provide the tools, training and motivation for property owners
to integrate landscape systems into development projects.
The Homer District is also in the beginning stages of developing
a management plan for the Fox River Flats region at the head
of Kachemak Bay. Check back for updates.
