This section on Áak’w & T’aakú Aaní, home of Auk and Taku people (Juneau region) is organized roughly by watershed. Units below are based largely upon the watersheds Parks & Recreation asked Discovery to interpret in the CBJ Natural History Project, 2007-2010. These are described in Natural history of Juneau trails (2013). Others have been added to fill in the gaps. For example: Daxanáak (Berners Bay) and Áak’w Táak, (greater Mendenhall Valley).
As we expand outward to full-Southeast scale in the next section, a more encompassing unit is required—the 22 biogeographic provinces extending from Yakutat to Hydaburgl
Here’s 13 watershed-based sub-categories of Áak’w & T’aakú Aaní. You can also view them on a clickable map.
Scattered throughout JuneauNature, you’ll find interactive maps created in ArcGIS Online. The map below delineates watershed units for the Juneau. A contour hillshade map is the default, but by clicking the 4-square basemap symbol, you can choose imagery or other options. Clicking within any of the subshed units launches a popup with more information. The box in upper right allows search for any feature on the base map. Try entering your street address, or a natural feature such as a stream or mountain.
