#10: Kenai Peninsula Berry Picking or Mushrooming
Here’s an activity you can enjoy absolutely free! With a variety of wild berries and mushrooms available throughout the mid to late summer season, and well into the fall, the Kenai Peninsula is the perfect place to enjoy foraging in the forest. (As bears do enjoy berries as well, a core part of their late summer diet, we advise that you go well armed with a slug loaded shotgun, .44 caliber or greater pistol with bear loads, or pepper spray to protect yourself and ensure you see no bears!)

Proper identification is vitally important, so do your research before frolicking in the forest!
