that is known for its homeless encampments.The Jungle grows on the steep northern slope of Beacon Hill near the south-end of Downtown Seattle. Being bound by Interstate 5 to the west and Interstate 90 to the north, the land is primarily managed by the city and state departments of transportation. The thin tract of land is about 100 acres and extends south to the Georgetown
neighborhood. Thick blackberry brambles and vines grow among maple and other trees in the urban forest. Various rodents—including rats—and numerous species of birds are common.
