Overview
Since 1951, the Nature Conservancy has worked to preserve the plants, animals, and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive. This grant would support the Conservancy's Alaska chapter in its efforts to change timber harvest practices in the 17 million-acre Tongass National Forest. The Alaska chapter seeks to reduce current reliance on cutting old-growth trees and increase focus on harvesting younger second-growth forests. The goals of the grant are to secure an administrative directive from Tongass Forest managers emphasizing second-growth timber harvest, ensure the forest is managed to protect its unique salmon spawning streams, and build community support for sustainable forest and salmon management.
