In certain places, it’s easy to forget about Jordan Creek: its lower reaches run between parking lots, shopping complexes, and the airport.
It’s also easy to forget the area around a large part of it is the Jordan Creek Greenbelt, managed by the city’s Parks and Recreation department.
“You walk along some of that habitat and you’re like ‘How is anything living?’” said Southeast Alaska Watershed Coalition program director Angie Flickinger. “It’s pretty cool to get some green infrastructure going. There’s a lot of potential.”
