You Can Improve The Marjory & Edgar Huizer Fishing Access Site!

Improving the Marjory & Edgar Huizer Fishing Access Site will allow for safe and easy access to Gastineau Channel and the Mendenhall Wetlands State Game Refuge for fishing and recreation.

Donations to this project support:

  • Installation of beach access stairs down to Gastineau Channel and the Refuge;
  • Creation of a public parking area for approximately 5 cars (including one ADA accessible parking spot);
  • Bank restoration and stabilization (the property has a steep bank that needs stabilization work); and
  • Installation of a property kiosk and signage (including educational information and fishing notices for the general public).

As residents of Juneau, we’ve seen the positive effects that public recreation areas have on our community. These spaces give families an outlet for energetic kids, provide a gathering place for making memories, and even allow for a sustainable way of life. We want to promote healthy living within our community, and we’re ready to get started.

Your contribution will make this
invaluable community resource possible.

Our goal for this campaign is to raise $75,000 by August 31st.
