About Us

The Sitka Conservation Society (SCS) has been working to protect Southeast Alaska’s quality of life and the Tongass National Forest since 1967. We are based in the small coastal town of Sitka, Alaska on the west coast of Baranof Island and surrounded by the Tongass. We are committed to the conservation of wilderness areas and to the sustainable development of Southeast Alaska’s natural resources. SCS is the oldest conservation organization in Alaska — learn more about our History!
