Project Overview

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 are working 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 will guide the next steps in community engagement and concept planning for improvements to the area.

In September, stakeholder group meetings are being held to better understand the natural habitat, cultural history and uses, and recreational uses. Experts in these areas, respondents to the survey and neighborhood groups have been invited to participate, share knowledge and provide ideas for the planning process. This information will be used to create draft concepts and plans for input and review by the public. There will be multiple opportunities for the public to provide feedback and ideas for this area, including a public meeting in October or November 2021.

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.
