Owner description: Popular locale for viewing waterfowl and salmon.
Reviewed November 17, 2013

This sanctuary is the default place to go when visiting Anchorage, Alaska for waterfowl and other wild birds. It is very convenient for a stop off right along the New Seward Highway. Is has an adjacent boardwalk with educational signage and easy access for everybody. Salmon spawn in the drainage creek and there are mammals as well. The background view is the Chugach range. Go there!

Even though the birds except for trumpeter swans had migrated it was nice to walk the wooden plank walk way. Starting in early May to mid September will afford birding. I especially loved the kiosks along the way that gives information about the flora, fauna and history of this area

I visited in mid-October and did not see any birds. However, it is a pleasant place to stop and look around. There are bird viewers for enthusiasts.

Stopped by Potter's Marsh on a 907 Tours city tour. Great place to take in a bit of the estuary - we encountered a moose laying down at the end of one of the walkway ramps and numerous wildlife in the water and surrounding area. Nice place to visit.
