The Fish Creek Recreation Area on Douglas Island is a popular recreation area and contains valuable fish and wildlife habitat. The City and Borough of Juneau, Southeast Alaska Watershed Coalition, and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game worked together to develop a master plan to guide improvements to recreational opportunities and rehabilitate the stream, estuary and surrounding natural habitat. In the summer of 2021, an informal survey was issued to inform current values and uses of the project area. The results of the survey are located here and guided the public process to develop the master plan. After several onsite meetings and a public zoom meeting, a plan was finalized. The plan can be found here.
In addition, two of our local experts, Richard Carstensen and Bob Armstrong, have developed historical information on the Fish Creek Park area along with photos and information on fauna that make this area home. You can find this information here.
