Chugach Children's Forest

In 2008, the Chugach National Forest designated itself a Children's Forest, a symbolic designation that creates exciting, new, and innovative opportunities for connecting Alaska's youth and communities with the outdoors.

The Chugach Children’s Forest is dedicated to:

  • A healthier tomorrow for Alaska's youth, communities, and forests
  • Innovative education in science and technology
  • Increased public awareness and youth leadership in climate change solutions

Led by Alaska Geographic and the Chugach National Forest, this ground-breaking program works in partnership with Alaska's communities, educators, non-profits, and public lands to create:

Fun, healthy, and active engagement with the outdoors for Alaskans of all ages.
