Help Us Improve The Marjory & Edgar Huizer Fishing Access Site!

SEAL Trust is launching a fundraising campaign to improve the Marjory & Edgar Huizer Fishing Access Site for safe and easy access to Gastineau Channel and the Mendenhall Wetlands State Game Refuge.

Our goal for this campaign is to raise $75,000 by August 31st. Please click here to go to our fundraising page to learn more and to make your donation today!

Your donation supports:

  • 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 support is the next step!

Please consider making a donation to help us meet our goal and contribute to this invaluable community resource. THANK YOU!

We invite you to join us at one of our upcoming events, and THANK YOU for supporting SEAL Trust!

Join two Juneau women who have transited the Northwest Passage. See images of their journeys and hear about changes occurring in the Arctic.

In 1995, as a naturalist and zodiac driver, Theresa Svancara spent 35 days working on a 240′ ice strengthened ecotour vessel transiting the passage twice (from east to west and back). The ship encountered a great deal of sea ice and required the services of a Canadian ice breaker.

In 2016, Linda Nicklin was a lecturer on board the 820′ Crystal Serenity. The ship was escorted by the icebreaker Earnest Shackleton, but had very little contact with ice.

These two journeys, 21 years apart, give perspective on changes and constants in Arctic travel, conditions, and human impacts in this beautiful region of the world. For more detailed information, please go to this linkWe hope you’ll join us!

WHEN: March 25th at 7:00pm

WHERE: Egan Lecture Hall, UAS campus
