Help shape the future of the Tongass National Forest!

The USDA Forest Service is revising the plan that shapes the agency's decisions and priorities on the country's largest national forest. This process is a chance for us to tell the Forest Service how the new Forest Plan can meaningfully manage the Tongass to support a healthy ecosystem and thriving communities. Whether you are passionate about climate change, tackling food insecurity, healthy salmon habitat, incorporating traditional knowledge and values in stewardship, or our emerging generations, our specialized commenting tool will help you share with the USDA your priorities and vision for 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.
