The Tongass National Forest our home. our life. protect it.
Founded in 1967, SCS is the oldest conservation organization in Alaska. Our grassroots work is based in Sitka, Alaska, a small coastal town in the heart of the Tongass, the largest national forest in the United States.
SCS protects the Tongass National Forest, the coastal temperate rainforest of Southeast Alaska, and supports the development of economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable communities within it.
Together, we celebrate the wilderness we love & work to protect
