SCS has been using the property as a creative retreat and as a field station for stewardship activities on surrounding Tongass National Forest lands. We’re connecting artists, writers, and community leaders from diverse backgrounds and mediums who are involved in environmental work to the Tongass – people who will take the inspiration afforded to them through their experience, share it widely through myriad mediums, and advocate for this place.

Creative outputs and networks as a result of retreats help to further SCS’s mission by engaging broader audiences, inspiring new advocates for the Tongass and Wilderness, and fostering new ideas for advocating for policies and actions we want to see.
