The Kenai Lowlands in southern Alaska cover 9.400 square kilometers and include huge expanses of wetlands, predominantly peatlands and tidal saltmarshes at river mouths and coastlines. As part of a project to assess the potential for blue carbon projects in this region, the Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and its partners developed communications strategies and tools to strengthen stakeholder networks and advance blue carbon conversations in the region.
