What We Do

At SCS, we have dual goals of protecting the coastal temperate rainforests of Southeast Alaska and developing economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable communities within the Tongass National Forest. Our tools include traditional grassroots advocacy, innovative collaborative partnerships, educating the next generation of conservation leaders, and well-honed defensive techniques.

SCS works to protect and manage the Tongass in a way that the world will be inspired by. As an organization, we hope that you will learn to love the wilderness and will be inspired too. Please check out our program areas to learn more about our work and the places we love.
