Skirt the harbor and walk toward the west side of the port area along Seppala Avenue, and you’ll cross the culvert where Dry Creek flows into the harbor. Upstream is a wide area of lowland vegetation. This area is subject to salt water intrusion during wind driven high tides, affecting the wetland habitat as it reaches the side slopes of tundra and willow shrubs. Puddle ducks forage and nest here. Look for shorebirds and other species as well.
