The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge will provide hook to table, hands-on campfire cooking lessons at the Kenai Peninsula Sport Rec and Trade Show, which is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex.
Refuge staff will assist youth in the cooking of their Trout Pond catch, using a wood fire, throughout this year’s sports show. In order to take advantage of this opportunity, find the refuge tent near the pond. Those interested can stop in with or without catch and learn campfire cooking and how to compost fish waste, among other things. Participants leave with fish cooked and seasoned.
