If you have lived in Alaska for very long you know our Cooperative Extension Service “Berry Book” has gone through many revisions over the last few decades. Recently it has gone through yet another change adding more berries and expanding some sections including the use of roses.
Our Communications Department has challenged Extension Offices across the state to find creative ways to disperse of the “old” copies for free. Our Kenai Peninsula Office has decided to challenge the public to a berry identification opportunity. The first five people to come in to our office and correctly identify our collection of berries will be awarded a free “Berry Book.”
We are located at 43961 Kalifornsky Beach Road, Suite A, Soldotna. This is the same building as Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 p.m.
For more information call us at262-5824, or visit our website at http://www.uaf.edu/ces/districts/kenai/.
