The Wilderness Society is a leader in transitioning the Tongass National Forest into a more sustainable future.
We work to find sustainable ways to protect Alaska’s rainforest and promote economic activity in southeast Alaska by:
- Managing the forest to support and protect resources beyond timber, including commercial fishing, tourism and recreation
- Restoring high value watersheds previously impacted by logging
- Shifting timber production away from old-growth logging, while establishing a small scale second-growth timber program that is more appropriately scaled to meet demand from local mills
