The Chugach Children’s Forest is a symbolic designation for the Chugach National Forest. The Chugach Children’s Forest creates opportunities for Alaska’s diverse youth and communities to connect with the over five million acres of the Chugach National Forest and neighboring public lands through education and career programs; stewardship and volunteerism; and leadership and partnership development.
