Local community leaders, community members, and employees gather near a major tributary of the Harris River to celebrate its renaming at the Prince of Wales Restoration Celebration in August 2011.
Groups represented include the Craig Tribal Association, the Hydaberg Cooperative Association, the Klawock Tribal Association, the National Forest Foundation, The Nature Conservancy, the Student Conservation Association, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Village of Kasaan.
Stewardship of the Tongass is a collaborative effort. From the many partners who join us in work and play, to the volunteers who donate their time and energy, to the Alaska Native Tribes who have been stewards of the forest for generations, the Tongass brings all of us together.
Partnerships enable all of us to improve both forest and community health in ways that we could not accomplish alone.
