Faces of the Chugach National Forest

2015 Capital Christmas Tree logo

This year, the Chugach National Forest will be providing the 2015 Capitol Christmas Tree which will stand tall on the west lawn of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. As part of the yearlong celebration leading up to the tree lighting, we are sharing some of the stories of the outstanding employees who serve as stewards and managers of the Chugach, the “jewel” of the National Forest System.

The Chugach, America’s most northerly National Forest

This stunning landscape stretches across south-central Alaska, from the salty waters and snowy peaks of Prince William Sound to the fabulous salmon and trout streams of the Kenai Peninsula, covering an area the size of New Hampshire. It is one of the few places left in the world where glaciers still grind valleys into the hard rock of the earth.
