Discovering the Tongass
The film features the extraordinary landscapes, wildlife and people of the largest National Forest in the U.S. It showcases diverse landscapes - from dense, green rainforests to stark, glowing-blue glaciers - all filmed from land, air and sea in gorgeous high definition cinematography. Experience the Tongass from the top of old growth trees to caves hidden deep beneath their roots. Travel to rivers where bears and eagles feast on spawning salmon. View whales moving through the Inside Passage; thousands of snow geese migrating to river deltas; sea lions frolicking among spring's breaking ice. This fill was created for the Forest Service to be shown at the Mendenhall Visitor Center in Juneau.
