Help the Forest Service shape the future of forest management on the Tongass!

In line with the USDA’s new, holistic approach the Forest Service is seeking community input, ideas, and values to better inform their activities and work on the Tongass National Forest. They need to hear from people who know these lands and waters best: Southeast Alaskans! Go to the link below to share your priorities, values, and ideas on how the Forest Service can work with communities, tribal governments, Native corporations, organizations, and networks throughout the region to steward the future of the Tongass.

Public lands are a national treasure and part of living in a democracy is to help take care of our network of public lands. SCS frequently works on projects taking care of the lands and waters of our national forest and there are often ways that volunteers can help. If you are interested in being part of our work or projects, please get in touch.
