The Nature Conservancy works to restore salmon streams and forests in Southeast Alaska in the Tongass National Forest.

Tongass Stewardship Projects

Stewardship and sustainable forestry can be defined as: “The planning and managing of forests for the continuous and consistent supply of all forest resources and services that both natural and human communities require for their continued survival”. It is simply forest management that balances the social and economic needs of humans with the ecologic needs of nature.

Emerald Edge Program

The Emerald Edge unfurls along the coasts of Southeast Alaska, British Columbia and Washington. This large-scale "whole system" initiative combines and amplifies our existing work in each region, scaling our efforts to address this entire coastal landscape—a place where forest, fish and people are inextricably connected—as a social, economic and ecological whole.​​
